CLE Speaker Reference Guide

Center for Legal Education

Who we are and what we do:

The Center for Legal Education is a non-profit course provider and part of the New Mexico State Bar Foundation. The State Bar Foundation is also the public service arm of the State Bar. We partner with our member sections, divisions and committees and produce stand- alone programs. 

No State Bar licensing fees support CLE. In addition, all net revenues help fulfill the foundation’s mission of providing public service and access to justice by financially supporting the programs in the foundation. 

Why partner with the Center for Legal Education for your CLE?

When you partner with the Center your receive the following benefits:
  • A designated point of contact to help coordinate program details.
  • Advertising through eblasts, eNews, Bar Bulletin, social media, and news released when appropriate.
  • All logistics handled by CLE staff for the program including gathering and printing materials, morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch, a/v equipment provided for CLE speakers, videotaping/webcasting of the CLE program, MCLE credit filings and space reserved at the State Bar Center which are included in the cost of the CLE.
  • Evaluations of programs offered are shared with the organization or committee to determine lessons learned from the program, i.e. the content presented, individual faculty presentations, what was liked about the program overall, what needs to change, etc.
Program revenues offset the cost and support the Bar Foundation. All presenters receive a complimentary registration.
