CLE Programs for University General Counsel and Higher-Education Attorneys: Buckner's Campus Speaker Series

Buckner has developed the following two new entries in its Campus Speaker Series, which is a complimentary service featuring firm attorneys providing continuing legal education (CLE) presentations on topics pertinent to higher-education attorneys' daily issues in-person (campus presentation) or via webinar (online program):

  • "Minimizing Legal Risk in College Athletics": Litigation, investigations and regulatory actions in college sports are on the rise. It is of the utmost importance for colleges and universities to have policies in place to guard against the most litigated and investigated issues. Minimize your university client's risk of exposure with this CLE program (1-hour and 90-minute versions are available). [Possible CLE credit: 1.0 or 1.5 general hours (depending on version selected).]

  • "Higher-Ed and NCAA Investigations: 10 Best Practices to Use and Hazards to Avoid": This CLE program outlines ten best practices to use, and strategies to avoid hazards, during higher-education and NCAA enforcement investigations and cases (1-hour and 90-minute versions are available). [Possible CLE credit: 1.0 or 1.5 general hours (depending on version selected).]

Participants will receive a workbook (containing strategies and best practices) and a copy of the PowerPoint presentation prior to the program.

Campus Speaker Series programs are designed for members of the office of general counsel, campus administrators and attorneys working in higher-education. Buckner also can collaborate with colleges and universities to develop a customized CLE program on investigative and legal risk management topics for general counsel, compliance and risk management staff.

Legal professionals interested in this resource can contact Michael L. Buckner (; +1-954-941-1844) to schedule a program. Buckner will work with the institution to apply for CLE credit with the applicable state bar associations. Buckner waives its speaker’s fee for the program; an institution’s cost will consist only of any CLE course application fees and Buckner’s travel expenses (for in-person programs).
