| Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Seminars |
Each year, a number of CLE courses are provided through the Institute of Continuing Legal Education in Georgia (ICLE). The ICLE is the not-for-profit educational service of the State Bar of Georgia; and is a consortium of the Bar and the Law Schools of the Universities of Georgia, Emory, Mercer, Georgia State and the John Marshall Law School.
The most popular CLE course for county attorneys is the Institute for City and County Attorneys held each fall in Athens. This two-day course provides 12 CLE credits including trial, ethics and professionalism requirements. ACCG and GMA work with the ICLE to create a yearly seminar that covers relevant topics for city and county attorneys. Another popular ICLE seminar for county attorneys is the Nuts and Bolts of Local Government Law, which is typically held in Atlanta. In addition to live seminars, ICLE also provides online, satellite and video CLE opportunities.
