A CLE Presenter is an individual law firm attorney who can upload to CounselCast any original CLE-accredited video programs in which he or she appears as a presenter, whether individually or as part of a panel.
If you intend to join an existing CounselCast subscription within your law firm, or if you intend to designate someone else within your firm to pay for a new subscription, register as a “CLE Presenter”.
If you are an attorney who will both present CLEs and manage payments on behalf of yourself and/or others within your firm, register as an Account Administrator as described below.
An Account Administrator is the individual (attorney or non-attorney) within the law firm responsible for supplying a payment method for the CounselCast subscription (individual or group) and determining which attorneys within the firm can join the subscription as CLE Presenters.
An Account Administrator can be an attorney or non-attorney. An Account Administrator who is an attorney will have the option to designate him/herself as a CLE Presenter during registration. Register as an Account Administrator if you intend to manage and pay for a subscription on behalf of yourself and/or one or more other CLE Presenters at your law firm.
Choose this option if you are employed full time as an in-house attorney at a commercial enterprise or non-profit organization, and you want to view free, high-quality CLE video programs tailored to your unique needs and interests on CounselCast. As an In-House Viewer, you can view any CLE programs uploaded to CounselCast, make public comments on any program and ask questions of CLE Presenters privately. You can also obtain free CLE credit for programs you complete in full.
Only attorneys employed full time as in-house attorneys at a commercial enterprise or non-profit organization are eligible to join CounselCast as In-House Viewers. Part-time, virtual and temporary in-house counsel and attorneys employed by governmental entities are not eligible to join CounselCast. CounselCast reviews every In-House Viewer registration request, and will decline requests by ineligible persons.
A Working Group is any team, department, practice group, geographical office location or other logical grouping of one or more individuals within a law firm that elects to subscribe to CounselCast on a group subscription.
The scope of a Working Group can be as broad as the entire law firm, as narrow as one individual within the firm or any breadth in between. Examples of Working Groups you might create include: “New York Office"; "M&A Section"; " "IP & Technology Group - Palo Alto"; “Mid-West Region”; "Firm-Wide"; "Sally Smith’s Team," etc.
Since separate departments, practice groups and office locations may each have unique marketing objectives and budgets, the ability to create distinct Working Groups provides each group within the firm maximum flexibility to join and pay for CounselCast on its own subscription.
Each Working Group must designate one individual (an Account Administrator) to manage and pay for the subscription on behalf of the group.
