When an attorney is admitted to the bar, that does not mean they know everything about their particular field of practice and have no more learning to do. In fact, continuing legal education (CLE) is required for all U.S. attorneys who wish to maintain their license to practice law. Some of the most common topics addressed during CLE programs include ethics, professional responsibility, prevention of malpractice, diversity training, basic skills and more. In some cases, however, CLE can also allow an attorney to stay up-to-date on the latest legal advances and changes the law. Such was the case when the KC DUI Guy, Attorney Robert "Chris" Gigstad from Gigstad Law Office, LLC, recently attended a Kansas CLE focusing on DUI law.
This particular CLE was held on March 8th, 2013, as part of the Kansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Spring CLE and Annual Meeting. It addressed the subject of DUI test refusals. A few of the other CLE subjects covered during the annual meeting included technology in the courtroom, dealing with large volume cases, an ethics update, white collar defense, sex predator commitment, the ten commandments of motions and more.
