What is a telephone seminar?
Telephone seminars are live, interactive, phone discussions of timely subjects that you can receive in your office, in your home, or wherever you can place a telephone call. All telephone seminars are classified as self-study CLE. Most telephone seminars/ audiocasts begin at 1 p.m. Eastern Time and last 60 minutes unless otherwise noted.
Will I be able to ask questions?
Yes. During the program, lawyers who want to ask a question of the faculty will be prompted to push a particular key on their touch-tone phone and be placed into a queue for questions.
How do I connect to a telephone seminar?
On any touch-tone phone you care to use. After you register for a program, you will be given a special toll-free number to call on the day of the seminar. When you call the toll free number, you will be patched into the program.
How do I access course materials?
You can access/ download your course materials by clicking the “materials” button under the program title in your self-study CLE account.
How do I get CLE credit?
In order to receive credit, you must register, pre-pay and call into the program yourself. You will be required to respond to three prompts during the program, requesting that you press a certain key on your telephone keypad to verify you are listening to the program. This will happen three times at random intervals during each telephone seminar. If you do not respond to all three prompts, Ohio Supreme Court CLE rules will not allow the award of any CLE credit for the program.
In addition, you must complete a course evaluation by logging back in to your OSBA self-study CLE account. Select the telephone seminar title you viewed and click on the tab marked "Certificate,” and clicking on the “Evaluation” link.
