Membership surveys confirm that CLE seminars remain the single most valuable benefit that members derive from belonging to the Bar Association of Erie County.

The Erie Institute of Law, the fully accredited educational arm of the BAEC, offers full day, half day and mini-seminars in a wide range of legal practice and ethics areas. 

Members can earn their credits by attending live seminars or purchasing audiocassette, videotape or CD recordings. Discount passbooks are available along with special pricing "for members only." You may register for seminars via the individual program brochures and program postcards that are mailed to all members, by contacting the Director of Continuing Legal Education, Mary Kohlbacher at 716-852-8687 or mkohlbacher@eriebar.org or you may also view our complete list of programs and /or register online on our Course Calendar.
