Self Study Or Audio Training Misses Important Face to Face Interaction

As more and more attorneys are meeting their CLE requirements through self study, online work or audio learning, in order to save themselves time and money, V. Iyer controversially insists that to truly keep up to date on the most current advances in the law, criminal defense attorneys should consistently go to live training programs to learn face to face from other experienced legal experts to get the full benefits of advanced training as well as practicing the new techniques with other lawyers in a workshop setting, which is not an option provided by self-study.

 Having recently returned from a seven day residential seminar at Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College in Wyoming in which he learned about newest trial techniques, he still was not satisfied he had done enough to stay at the top of his game and is immediately returning next week for yet  another seven day intensive session covering even more advanced techniques.
