Lawline, the nation’s leading online Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider, is thrilled to announce the launch of an exclusive new package dedicated to SBA 7(a) Loan Closings. The 7(a) Loan Program is the SBA’s most popular loan program and is the agency’s primary vehicle for providing assistance to small businesses.

Given the complexities of the SBA’s many requirements, any attorney engaged in this work should do their research before embarking on a 7(a) Loan Closing. The new series is designed for attorneys, paralegals, and bankers engaged in closing SBA 7(a) Loans. The series would also benefit anyone interested in learning more about integrating the closing process with loan eligibility and packaging and loan servicing. Session topics include types of 7(a) lenders, eligible and ineligible borrowers and use of loan proceeds, loan structures, environmental requirements, and more. All sessions are available on demand, and may be purchased as a bundle for the entire series or a la carte for specific topics. Additionally, all courses are accredited for CLE.

Instructor Jan Garlitz is an SBA Designated Attorney with over 30 years of hands-on experience as an attorney closing 7(a) Loans, as well as 23 years teaching SBA Loan closing courses to attorneys and lenders nationwide. “This package provides comprehensive and affordable training,” says Garlitz, aptly summarizing the value of this package, “so as to correctly close 7(a) Loans and protect the SBA guaranty.”

Lawline, the nation’s leading online Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider, announced it’s launch of a new Universal CLE Tracker. The tracker is free to use and allows attorneys nationwide to easily manage CLE compliance regardless of the CLE provider used or the state they are admitted in.

Requiring only a simple registration, the tracker gives attorneys the ability to track all U.S. state-specific credit requirements, such as Ethics, Professionalism, or Diversity. Additionally, attorneys will be able to distinguish whether courses taken are via webcast, online, or live in-person so they can ensure a state’s course format requirements are properly met. Perhaps the best feature is the ability to add credits obtained outside of Lawline. With this feature, attorneys can view all of their credits in one place - whether obtained in-house, online, or at an event.

Additional features coming soon include the highly anticipated launch of the tracker in Lawline’s mobile app as well as the ability to assign credits to different reporting periods to account for rollover credits and extensions.

“We understand that tracking CLE compliance can be confusing and time consuming,” said Richard Hernandez, Lawline’s Vice President of Customer Experience. “We created a product to simplify this process for attorneys and allow them to manage and store everything in one place.”

Lawline, the nation’s leading online Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider, announced today that it will be offering four live webcasts just for Virginia attorneys on the October 31, 2017 Virginia CLE reporting deadline. These webcasts are all CLE accredited by the Virginia State Bar and are designed with the Virginia practitioner in mind. The courses include:

1. Bankruptcy Litigation 101: What Virginia Business Litigators Need to Know 
2. Rocket Docket Litigation: A Business Litigator's Perspective on Practice in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia 
3. Introduction to Operating Agreements in Virginia 
4. Forming a Nonprofit Entity in Virginia

These live webcasts are offered as part of the already extensive list of courses Lawline is providing to Virginia attorneys in anticipation of the deadline, which includes more than 30 live webcasts in the month of October and 300+ on-demand courses.

Two attorneys scheduled to present on Virginia Day weighed in on the importance of their courses for fellow practitioners. “There is a reason why they call the Eastern District of Virginia the Rocket Docket,” said attorney Jesse Binnall. “It is the fastest paced federal court in the country… but many lawyers may very well find that litigating cases here will be some of the most rewarding experiences of their lives.” Of her program on nonprofit entity formation, attorney Pantea Stevenson said, “Since the recession, nonprofits have been subject to additional scrutiny and transparency requests. Setting up good governance for your nonprofit clients is more important than ever.”

Lawline, the nation’s leading online Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider, announced today that it has launched a brand new NY Deadline Checker for New York attorneys. The tool requires just the first and last name of any New York attorney to pull up their registration number, year admitted, and CLE reporting deadline - in seconds.

This tool is available to all New York attorneys, regardless of whether they are a current Lawline customer. The experience gets even better with the click of a button to Lawline’s credit tracker, which is also free of charge and easily accessible after a brief registration. Attorneys are able to track their own CLE credit in each state they are admitted - even allowing them to add credits obtained elsewhere to be sure they are compliant.

“We simply wanted to give attorneys easy access to the information they need,” said Richard Hernandez, Lawline’s Vice President of Customer Experience. “We recognize that a reporting deadline can often slip through the cracks, compounding on a lawyer’s already busy schedule. We’re here to help ensure that doesn’t happen to our fellow New Yorkers.”

Lawline, the nation’s leading online Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider, announced today that it will be offering an exciting new webcast entitled A Legal Analysis of ICE Interior Enforcement and Sanctuary Cities. The course, airing on on October 10, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. EST, will address the divisive issue of immigration enforcement, particularly between state and local governments and the Federal government. Discussion will include the machinery utilized by the Department of Homeland Security to enforce immigration laws within the U.S., as well as concepts necessary to understand the intersections between agencies, governments, and relevant criminal and immigration laws.

This program is approved for accreditation across several jurisdictions and is accredited by the Virginia State Bar as part of Lawline’s initiative to offer Virginia practitioners a wide array of interesting and socially relevant content.

“The issues related to sanctuary cities are driving some of the most important developments in governmental policy and constitutional law,” said immigration practitioner and course presenter Matthew Blaisdell. “Federal courts across the country are grappling with litigation that may define the relationships between federal, state, and municipal governments, as well as the role of the Executive and the limits on its powers.”
