Woman-owned Startup, CLE Companion, Highlights Sports Law in Initial Launch

CLE Companion, a fast-growing legal technology company that is changing the CLE industry by offering an affordable and easy way for attorneys to satisfy their CLE requirement, announced today that it is offering dozens of approved legal courses that are now available on-demand. Many more are in the pipeline and will be live-streamed and then archived on the website in the coming weeks.

The service is priced in three tiers – individual courses starting at $49, state compliance bundles at $159, and unlimited packages at $199.  CLE Companion also offers each customer their first course for just $29.

“We wanted to create pricing that would work for all attorneys, while delivering cutting-edge, interesting content that would not only help them meet their requirement, but also serve them well in their practice,” said Kristin Davidson, the Executive Director of CLE Companion. “To that end, each course is hand-selected based on current litigation as well as attorney feedback, creating a compelling library of courses.”

Davidson interviewed thousands of attorneys, while building the platform. They urged her to make taking the courses as convenient as possible, advice she took to heart in creating CLE Companion.

“Courses can be completed anytime, anywhere from any device,” said Davidson. “This contrasts with taking CLE at a conference, which is a major inconvenience.”

Attorneys are already taking note.

“CLE Companion is a powerful resource that I know I can turn to when I need it,” said Fletcher Brown, a partner at Waller Lansden Dortch & David LLP.

Carla Varriale, a partner at New York City-based Havkins Rosenfeld Ritzert & Varriale, added that “my CLE Companion unlimited membership is a great value and a powerful tool for diving deeper into subject matters. The courses are always current and relevant to my practice.”
