Founded in 1989 by Leo C. DiEgidio, Esq., the Academy of Continuing Legal Education seeks to provide classes which will be useful to small-office practitioners who encounter a wide variety of legal issues of concern to individuals, families, and small businesses. The Academy has engaged judges, magistrates, administrative hearing officers, and experienced private practitioners, to present a continuing series of programs at various locations around Ohio, each of which is approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio toward fulfilling an Ohio attorney's biennial requirement of 24 hours of continuing education. The Academy has incorporated presentations fulfilling the Professional Conduct requirement into many of our programs.

Ohio Election Law 2023.1 will be presented July 26, 2023, live, in-person, at Richfield.

The Academy has reserved the large banquet room at the Venue South, formerly the Richfield Conference Center, at the Days Inn Richfield. This is the same location used for the past thirteen years, but uses the largest room in the venue. Seating of attendees will be distanced at six feet. Attendees will be requested, or, if the public health situation deteriorates, required to wear masks, except program speakers when speaking from the podium and distanced from others. If you believe you are sick, please do not attend. The Academy has customarily attracted some of the most experienced Ohio election law practitioners to our events, and we will do our best to make sure that our attendees stay healthy.

These procedures are not without monetary cost. The Academy has raised the regular registration fee for this program by ten dollars, $235.00 for regular registration and $180.00 for non-attorney election official registration received before July 17, 2023, and raised the late registration fee to $265.00 for all registrations received July 17, 2023, or later.

Additionally,to minimize contact, the Academy will make the program materials available in pdf format, on July 21, before the program, so as to minimize paper handling. If you require a paper copy of the materials, the Academy will provide a set of paper materials for an additional cost of ten dollars per set. There is a space on the Reservation form that an attendee may pay the additional $10.00 and receive a printed set of materials at sign-in on the day of the program. The Academy has arranged with the venue so that electric power outlets are available for charging the devices of attendees.

These difficult times make it even more important that the Academy present the Ohio Election Law program, to keep Ohio attorneys, election officials, candidates, campaign professionals, and citizen activists, informed on actions of the Ohio General Assembly, of the Secretary of State of Ohio, and of Ohio and federal courts, as those actions affect the conduct of elections in Ohio. The 2023.1 program will be July 26, fourteen days before the August 9 filing deadline for non-partisan candidates for the November 7, 2023, general election.

The July 26, 2023, six-and-one-half-hour "Ohio Election Law 2023.1" program has been approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio, Commission on CLE, for the customary four hours general CLE and two and one-half hours Professional Conduct, as for the past thirteen years. The program has been approved by Secretary of State LaRose for four hours of continuing education for Board of Election members and directors. The detailed description of this program is posted here.
