Who We Are
Who We Are



MCLE derives creative ideas and advice for program and book collection development from practice area curriculum advisory committees. Curriculum advisory committee members are practitioners who have achieved recognition in their area of practice and who are committed to sharing the benefit of that expertise with their colleagues. Throughout the year, the committees meet with MCLE's staff attorneys to advise MCLE as to the impact of new legal developments on the program curricula and book collection, and provide practical insight on how MCLE's programs, publications, and online offerings can best meet the CLE needs of the Massachusetts, New England, and national bars and the public they serve.
