In September, the Foothills Bar Association announced its partnership with Attorney Credits, an approved MCLE provider, to videotape FBA’s seminars. As part of that partnership, Attorney Credits furnishes a copy of the final video to the FBA in a DVD format.
The FBA is in the planning stages of developing its own library of DVDs so its members can borrow and view a presentation that he or she may have missed due to a scheduling conflict. The FBA currently has DVDs for the “So You Settled Your Case, Now What?” seminar presented by Jon H. Epsten and Mark R. Raftery through the FBA’s Civil Litigation Section in August 2010, and the “Medi-Cal Recovery – An Unavoidable Event?” seminar presented by Richard Scott Stewart through the FBA’s Estate Planning Section in September 2010. Both videos are also available for purchase through Attorney Credits’ website.
The FBA will add to its library as videos are received, and will keep members apprised of the titles through the newsletter. The check out procedure, once established, will require a member to leave a deposit when picking up the video. The FBA intends to keep the lending period short so that other members can utilize this benefit, particularly during the “crunch” months.
Don’t forget that FBA members receive a 20% discount on all purchases at Attorney Credits. It offers a wide variety of California-approved MCLE presentations in various formats through its website. Be sure to take advantage of this valuable benefit.
Look for more announcements regarding the FBA’s video library in the near future!
