Continuing Legal Education sessions are part of Convergence programming at SXSW 2016 and open to all Music, Film, Interactive, Gold, and Platinum badgeholders.

While CLE sessions are open to all badgeholders, priority entrance will be granted to attorneys if capacity issues arise. CLE credit will be available for all attorneys in attendance. Attorneys attending may receive up to four hours of CLE credit during SXSW Film and Interactive, and eight hours of CLE credit during SXSW Music (including one hour of ethics).

Designed for attorneys, entrepreneurs, C-level executives, content creators, financiers and beyond, CLE sessions discuss the legal perspectives of timely industry trends. So for those thinking about Continuing their Legal Education at SXSW, it’s not just a good idea, it’s the law.
