I picked up 1.5 credit hours this week and didn’t have to risk pepper spray-by-shopper amongst the holiday crowds. I attended the Webinar, “Guardian Accountability and Monitoring: Where Do We Stand?” presented under the auspices of the National Consumer Law Center’s (NCLC) National Elder Rights Training Project for the National Resource Center.
The program was well done and the presenters knowledgeable, including Jerry W. Hammond & Associates), Sally Hurme (AARP), Naomi Karp (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – Office of Older Americans), and Erica Wood (ABA Commission on Law and Aging). See Presentations Recording

But also note you’ll need to submit such programs to your jurisdiction for CLE credit approval. For example, for Nevada credit, I used Form 2 available at the following link to the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education.
And like a broken record (how is that for a dated reference?), don’t fault me if your state bar kaboshes your approval request or if you don’t like the content or the presenters or if a link gets broken or just otherwise – – – you’re an angry sourpuss because you got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
[NCLC also states the following on its website: “Other webinar series also include topics focused on auto fraud and domestic violence survivors. Webinars that are not part of an on-going series can be found at other webinars.” http://www.nclc.org/conferences-training/webinars.html
