Do Attorneys need to Continue Legal Education?

Legal Education

A lawyer has an obligation to continue their legal education.

National College of DUI Defense & National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

The hiring of a DUI attorney in Broward may be one of the most important decisions that you ever make.  As you can see by the overwhelming amount of mail advertisements that you have received, there would appear to be no shortage of attorneys practicing in the field of DUI.  When interviewing attorneys, always ask if they are members of the National College for DUI Defense, in addition to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.  You may further wish to make inquiry as to whether they regularly attend national and local DUI training programs and seminars presented by each of these most important organizations.  I, personally, was very surprised to see only a couple of practicing DUI attorneys at the last National NACDL DUI Practice Seminar.  The annual NACDL DUI Seminar is one of the most respected in the nation and is designated to educate DUI attorneys in the latest developments, advances, and defenses in areas involving field sobriety tests, breath tests, blood and urine analysis, as well as cross-examination techniques.  Lecturers consist of the top DUI scholars and scientists in the country.   Before you decide what attorney is right for you, always take the time to examine what Continuing Legal Education steps that particular lawyer has undertaken within the past twelve month period.  To determine if an attorney is current with his continuing legal education requirements, please contact The Florida Bar at flabar.org or call 850-561-5600.
