Continuing Education

CLE Opportunities

One of the Academy’s principal missions is to provide first-rate continuing education for lawyer mediators and arbitrators.  Each year the education committee plans at least one CLE activity meeting the standards for qualification under Iowa Court Rule 42.2 (2008). These conferences and seminars are led by experienced mediators and educators on topics that are timely and informative for the practitioner.
