In my recent article for Law Technology News, Podcasting: CLE’s New Wave?, I predicted that podcasting may just be the next big thing in CLE. Little did I know, CLE podcasts were already in the works.

Yesterday, the Santa Clara County Bar Association launched a series of one-hour CLE podcasts dubbed CLE Programs To Go. It has even set up a “podcast recording studio” in the SCCBA offices. SCCBA Executive Director Christine Burdick writes that she first had the idea back in November, but it took a bit to get everything in place. “The easiest part,” she says, “was recording the podcast.”

An e-mail sent to SCCBA members yesterday announcing the new benefit quotes my article, wherein I write that lawyers “may someday soon get [CLE] through podcasting.” To that, the e-mail adds, “CLE podcasts as ‘someday soon’ is NOW for SCCBA members.”
