CLE: Tech Contracts Academy On-Demand webinars are approved for Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) credit in California, and we provide a CA CLE certificate (self-study). Jurisdictions elsewhere (and professions) differ on whether students may apply individually, and if so what’s required. See here for details about CLE.

Note: Parts of Chapter 5, on indemnities, is also covered in our separate program, The Indeminar. And parts of Chapter 1, on the line between cloud and professional services, come up in many of our courses. (We consider occasional overlaps valuable, reinforcing key lessons for students who take both courses.
