Attorneys within the United States are required to complete certain CLE courses in order to keep their law licenses active. Since there is no uniform set of rules for CLE within the United States, each of the states maintain their own special requirements for the practicing attorneys within their jurisdiction. Upon being accepted into Lawyers of Distinction, members will have access to an Unlimited CLE Package & Legal Research offered by CLE Companion. With your membership in Lawyers of Distinction, you will have access to any course, in both Live Stream and On Demand formats, in all areas of practice on an easy to navigate website. Lawyers of Distinction members will now have access to completing their CLE requirements at the click of a button.
Lawyers of Distinction Members have been selected based upon a review and vetting process by our Selection Committee utilizing U.S. Provisional Patent # 62/743,254. The platform generates a numerical score of 1 to 5 for each of the 12 enumerated factors which are meant to recognize the applicant’s achievements and peer recognition. All applicants must be licensed to practice law. Members are then subject to a final review for ethical violations within the past ten years before confirmation of Membership. A Lawyers of Distinction Nomination does not guarantee membership and attorneys may not pay a fee to be nominated. Attorneys may nominate to Lawyers of Distinction their peers whom they feel warrant consideration. The determination of whether an attorney qualifies for Membership is based upon the aforementioned proprietary analysis discussed above. Membership is not meant to infer any endorsement of Lawyers of Distinction by any of the 50 United States Bar Associations or The District of Columbia Bar Association. Any references to “excellent,” “excellence,” or “distinguished” are meant to refer to the Lawyers of Distinction organization only and not to any named member individually.
