The Arkansas Bar Association's Best of CLE is a time-honored tradition with some new twists. They have invited back outstanding speakers from seminars presented during the last 12 months to re-present their topics in case you missed them the first time. Additionally, they have asked outstanding speakers to present new and timely topics needed to aid you in your practice. The combined total equals the BEST of CLE! The mission of the Arkansas Bar Association is to create new opportunities to communicate with the public and the legal community.
