Training

I teach a wide variety of legal education seminars and workshops for attorneys, law students, paralegals and members of the public.


CLE Trainings for Attorneys

Attorney James M. Branum - Military Law CLEI can provide CLE (continuing legal education) training for your local bar association or advocacy group. These trainings can be adapted to your local needs but most often serve as an introduction to military law for civilian attorneys who want to assist military servicemembers in their area. My past presentations have been approved for credit by the state bars of Oklahoma, Texas, California, Washington, Alaska and New Mexico.
