Do I Earn CLE Credits? Are there certificates for participation in the program?
The program is not certified for CLE credits. As it is not a course per se, and instead is a coaching program, you would need to check with your state accrediting board.

Certificates are not generally provided, however, should you need a certificate to submit for applicable CLE credit, contact Laura at support@refinedlawyer.com.  


Can I send all my associates and/or all of my firm's attorneys to the Refined Lawyer™ coaching program?

Yes. You may also consider an exclusive customized coaching program for your associates and/or firm. A customized program would be dedicated to your firm only, tackling specific issues your attorneys face in their interactions with peers, clients, staff, and in the courtroom.


Can I send my staff to the Refined Lawyer™ program?

The Refined Lawyer™ is dedicated to attorneys at this time. However, you may consider a customized coaching program that is dedicated for your entire firm, or exclusively for your staff.


Another tool available for your staff are webinars that the Civility & Etiquette Centre offers. These may also be customized for your firm.
