Continuing Legal Education
Each year the CLE Committee strives to provide seminars of the highest quality, utilizing local talent while keeping registration costs at a minimum. Tony Hazel is Chair of the 2013-2014 CLE Committee and Mark Wardrop is the Spokane County Bar Association contact for all Continuing Legal Education related issues.
We are always searching for CLE topics that interest our members and quality speakers who are willing to volunteer their time to share their expertise with colleagues. If you have a CLE topic to suggest or wish to volunteer your services to the CLE Committee, feel free to contact Mark Wardrop.
