On-Demand Course Bundle Details

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

Add to Cart


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 and pop culture.  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, Aretha Franklin, Charles Dickens, and Robin Williams.  

Get inspired to become an even more diligent litigator by re-living the historic trials of Wild West icons Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, and of one of the accused Lincoln assassination co-conspirators.

Learn the real-world basics of drafting prenuptial agreements for your own clients by examining the do's and don'ts we learn from the prenuptial contracts of several famous people, including Tom Brady and Steven Spielberg.   

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 like Katy Perry, LeBron James, Val Kilmer, and more!

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).

Custom Bundles also available:  Many attorneys like the convenience of these pre-packaged "bundles" of pre-recorded On-Demand courses.  But you also have the option of creating your own Custom Bundle of On-Demand courses and hand-picking your choices from our growing library of seminars (most approximately 1 hour each).  To make a Custom Bundle, just go back to the previous screen and click on the green "Build a Custom Bundle" link in the upper right-hand corner.
