- General History
In 2001 as co-chairs of the Salt Lake Chapter of the J. Reuben Clark Society Chapter, Tony Schofield and Gene Bramhall were asked to develop something exciting for the law society. They created a CLE program for attorneys during BYU Education Week. They have enjoyed wonderful cooperation with the University and this is now an institutionalized part of Education Week. The law school has been very supportive with the law school faculty assisting in providing challenging presenters and the local Bar has supported the program, year after year, with insightful presentations. These lectures sometimes recall lessons already learned, but just as often attendees are treated to new and cutting edge ideas in their particular areas of practice.
Without exhausting the list, over the years attorneys have been instructed by federal judges, at both the trial and appellate level, Tony Schofield lectured several times on trial ethics when he was on the bench, the late Congressman Bill Orton frequently talked on ethics issues and Professor Jim Gordon helped us understand civility in our demanding lives. Attendees have benefited from lectures on trial advocacy, legal writing and appellate argument.
We expect the program to continue with the enthusiastic support of our growing audience who enjoy the high quality presentations and the roughly twenty hours of CLE credit for an incredibly inexpensive price.
