"History, Famous People, & the Law" Bundle for Missouri

Add to Cart

Overview

Earn a total of 6 hours of Missouri CLE credit with this innovative collection of courses featuring Billy Newman and his fascinating take on history.  The best thing about the courses in this bundle is that Billy extracts surprisingly practical lessons for modern-day law practice by examining the legal files of famous people, and by finding helpful analogies in the history books.  Learn how to avoid common mistakes in Wills drafting with a peek at the Wills of George Washington, Elvis Presley, Charles Dickens, and Robin Williams.  Get a better grasp on the Rules of Evidence and rules of expert testimony by re-living the trials of the Lindbergh kidnapper and Sir Walter Raleigh.  Learn the real-world basics of drafting prenuptial agreements for your own clients by examining the do's don's we learn from the prenuptial agreements of several famous people.   

Billy then presents his immensely popular rundown on what general practitioners need to know about copyrights and trademarks -- illustrated with references to some recent high-profile intellectual property disputes involving well-known entertainers and authors.

And finally, learn the unique environment of representing professional atheletes -- with Bus Cook's presentation on Sports Law.  Bus is the long-time sports agent/lawyers for dozens of NFL, NBA, and MLB players, including Brett Favre, Steve McNair, and Cam Newton.

* Please note that the content in this bundle of On-Demand CLE courses is similar to the content in our Live Webcast entitled "Lessons for Lawyers from the History Books."

This bundle of On-Demand CLE courses (watch them online, or download the audio as an mp3 file) are considered "self-study" courses under Missouri MCLE Rules.  The Missouri rules permit attorneys to earn a maximum of 6 hours of CLE per year through "self-study" courses of this nature.  The remainder of your annual MCLE requirement in Missouri must be earned with "live" CLE courses (like our Barristers Live Webcasts -- available on the "Live Webcasts" page of this website).
