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.
In 2017, the Academy presented an Environmental Law program on June 2, and an Ohio Election Law program August 3. In anticipation of the 2018 candidate filing deadline in February, 2018, the Academy has scheduled another Ohio Election Law program, "Ohio Election Law 2017.3 - Preparing for the 2018 Primary" for December 7.
On December 7, 2017, the Academy presents a six-and-one-half-hour "Ohio Election Law 2017.3". This program will be presented, as it has been every year since 2007, with updates on Ohio and Federal litigation, legislative activity in the Ohio General Assembly, and the most current Secretary of State directives and advisories. This program will include two and one-half hours of Professional Conduct credit, for the benefit of those who are approaching the end-of-year reporting deadline and have not yet fulfilled this requirement.. A description of this program is online, here.
