As paralegals, we know it's important to never stop learning and keep our skills fresh and relevant. Add to that, the requirement to report continuing legal education credits to a variety of different entities. While many firms pay for the continuing education requirements for attorneys, many of those same firms do not cover those expenses for their paralegals even though they benefit from the education and certification of their paralegals. Even when firms do pay, it can be time consuming to collect all of the necessary credits, especially if you've waited until the last minute.
The annual Paralegals Navigating Perilous Waters cruise event is a fun and convenient way for paralegals to obtain a large chunk of their CLE credits at a really reasonable cost while enjoying a fantastic tropical cruise vacation. Of course, there is a lot more to the cruise than CLE and you won't find yourself falling asleep in a boring conference room, so make sure you check out the next cruise and join us in person!
