NEW YORK, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past decade, the legal industry has seen the price of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) gradually decrease. Rather than holding on more tightly to their content and keeping courses hidden behind fees, Lawline.com has taken a different approach. With its new social-media friendly website, learn.lawline.com, the leading CLE provider has now opened its content in what it calls "The Easiest Way to Search, Learn, and Share CLE."
The new website boasts hundreds of hours of content that has been segmented into miniature clips. Each clip answers a common legal question an attorney, or even those amongst the public, may have about the law. All clips can be easily searched in a "YouTube" type fashion.
"I am obsessed with organizing information to make it more accessible for others," says Lawline.com CEO David Schnurman. "I believe every course has at least 10 to 15 'golden nuggets' of information that are hard to find. Until 'Learn' the only way to see them was to watch the entire program. Now you can go right to the golden nugget and watch that clip and get your question answered."
There is no fee for using the site. All content is free for viewing, searching, and sharing.
"I made it free for everyone because it just felt right," continues David. "Today, the power of education is making it more accessible not locking it behind a pay wall."
