Welcome to TCLE, Thompson Coburn's webinar program, designed to keep in-house counsel and their legal staff, as well as business professionals, updated on regulatory trends, upcoming challenges and proposed legislation - all of which can impact your business.
TCLE webinars cover a variety of subjects, generally last 60 minutes and begin at noon central time unless noted otherwise. Programming is geared for in-house counsel and their staff who are seeking cost-effective ways to maintain their CLE requirements and stay updated on changing legal issues and regulatory trends.
These webinars are also a great way for non-legal professionals to stay on top of current legal topics affecting their businesses and industries.
The purpose of these webinars is to provide news and information on legal issues. All content provided is for informational purposes only, and should not be considered legal advice. The transmission of information from these webinars does not establish an attorney-client relationship with the viewer. The viewer should not act on the information contained in any of the materials or in presentation of these webinars without first consulting retained legal counsel. If you desire legal advice for a particular situation, you should consult an attorney.
The viewer is advised to check the date the webinar was recorded and, where the information presented is time sensitive, to seek out subsequent updates.
