In 2016, CLINIC will offer an expanded menu of e-learning courses. These e-learning courses offer flexibility – much of the work can be done anytime during the week when the student chooses to do it. In contrast with CLINIC’s in-person trainings, learning in the online courses relies primarily on individual study and practice rather than on lecture and group learning. The e-learning courses involve a blend of self-directed learning and interaction with both the instructors and the other course participants. The courses last either four or six weeks, and students may do the course work on their own schedules. Students learn by taking part in weekly webinars; completing reading assignments, exercises, and other activities; and sharing ideas with each other in online discussion forums. Each weekly live webinar is recorded and posted on the course website shortly after the webinar is concluded, so course participants who can't make the live webinar may view the recorded webinar at any time.
Course participants should plan to spend up to four hours per week on each of these courses. Participants may do the majority of that work on their own schedules – readings and exercises and the online discussion forum. Each course will include a required weekly webinar; all webinars are recorded and posted on the course website, so you may view the recording at your convenience if you are unable to attend the live webinar.
Course participants will receive a course completion certificate if they (a) attend or view recordings of the weekly course webinar and (b) complete the required course activity for the week. You have up to two weeks after the last live webinar in the course to meet these requirements.
CLINIC is authorized by the State Bar of California to provide minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) trainings. E-learning participants are eligible to claim 1.5 hours of MCLE credits per webinar for the webinar component of our e-learning immigration law courses. The certificate of attendance issued at the conclusion of the course will note the CLE hours you earned through webinar attendance. If you are an attorney licensed in another state, please check with your state bar to determine whether this training qualifies for MCLE credit. CLE credit does not apply to immigration program management training.
All materials for e-learning courses will be available for download by registered course participants on the CLINIC e-learning website.
Below is a list of registration fees for e-learning courses. CLINIC cannot issue any refunds for fees once a course has started.
