About Celesq®’s CLE Series

Celesq® offers programs in a variety of practice areas of particular interest to outside and in-house corporate counsel and litigators. From time to time, a number of our presenters work with Celesq® to present multiple programs and CLE series to keep our attendees up-to-the-minute on breaking news and current trends in their practice areas. Current CLE series include the following:


1. Litigation and Trial Skills: Celesq® offers numerous programs in trial and litigation skills, including programs in relevant ethical issues, discovery and particularly e-Discovery, and litigation holds. Celesq®’s very popular CLE Trial Skills Series covers practical tips, techniques and strategies for litigation and trial, from depositions and motion practice, to voir dire, trial exhibits, and the opening statement, direct examination, cross examination and closing argument stages. The programs in this series are presented by highly-respected trial practitioners from Jones Day, including partner Thomas R. Jackson and partner Michael H. Ginsberg, the chair of the board of trustees of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA).

2. Intellectual Property: Covering the hot topics and trends in IP: For several years, Celesq® has been offering its popular CLE series, the Celesq®-West LegalEdcenter IP Master Series, for the IP practitioner. Programs are presented by recognized experts from such distinguished firms as Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP and McDermott Will & Emery LLP, among others.

3. Asset Protection and Estate Planning: For several years, Celesq® has worked with Barry S. Engel on programs related to Asset Protection and Estate Planning under the heading “Engel on Asset Protection.” Mr. Engel, a principal in the firm Engel & Reiman pc, and the lead author of the Asset Protection Planning Guide: A State-of-the-Art Approach to Integrated Estate Planning (CCH), is sometimes joined by colleagues, particularly with respect to estate planning and taxation programs.
