    Unlimited CLE Opportunities

    George BrownSo how's $595 sound? That would be for unlimited CLE. At one great price. For 365 days. No kidding.

    Ultimate Pass, a new State Bar CLE Seminars subscription package, gives you the flexibility you need at a cost we think you'll appreciate. Here's how it works:

    With one yearly payment, you can enjoy unlimited access to any CLE seminar the State Bar produces, whether live, video, webcast, webcast replay, telephone, or OnDemand. These seminars include annual updates, national speakers, Build Your Practice, and specialty skills seminars.

    The Ultimate Pass could save many attorneys up to $400 on average compared to the regular price of required CLE. (Wisconsin lawyers must attend four to five seminars over two years to attain their required CLE.) The more you use the Ultimate Pass, the more you save. The first year of this 365-day subscription program is $595. Renew within 60 days of your expiration date and receive your second-year subscription for only $425. And, if you're a new lawyer - admitted to practice law within the last two years - you'll receive your first year's subscription at the renewal rate.

    With Ultimate Pass you get only what you need and want because you can attend just the portion of a seminar you need - no more full-day commitments for just the two hours of a program you really want.

    CLE Seminars becomes a research tool with the Ultimate Pass. When you want to brush up on an area of the law, but don't need any additional CLE credits, access the OnDemand library and view what you need. You also can print any written materials that complement our seminar presentations.

    Other offerings come with deep discounts through the Ultimate Pass. If you are looking for more federal and multi-state education, the Ultimate Pass includes access to the national listing of WebCredenza telephone seminars for 50 percent off the regular price. And, your Ultimate Pass admits you to the State Bar Annual Convention, the state's largest gathering of lawyers, where you can earn an entire year's worth of CLE and attend all the unticketed social and networking events for only $75, instead of $395.

    So really, how does $595 sound? For unlimited CLE. For 365 days. No kidding.

    Ultimate Pass is available now. For more information and to subscribe, please visit www.wisbar.org/ultimatepass.
