Webinars: eDiscovery CLE and other LexisNexis Events in October

Webinar eDiscovery CLE and other LexisNexis Events in October
Instead of trick or treats, how about CLE credits for Halloween this year?

You don’t have to wear a costume to earn the credits, it will take some spookiness out of eDiscovery, and you get a head start on costume ideas.  After all, armed with CLE credits on eDiscovery, you’ll be entitled to splurge on a new super lawyer costume this year.

Here’s the lineup of legal tech webinars and events – including a cross-country road show coming to a city near you – currently scheduled for October 2015.  Keep an eye on the list too as we have a few events we might update as we work to solidify the logistics on a few additional events.
