Micah U. Buchdahl of Moorestown, New Jersey has been appointed chair of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Continuing Legal Education (SCOCLE), the entity that oversees CLE for the largest professional organization of lawyers in the world. Buchdahl, president of the law marketing consultancy HTMLawyers, was appointed by ABA president Paulette Brown.
“There are numerous critical issues surrounding the continuing legal education of attorneys,” said Buchdahl. “They include diversity of faculty, consistency of educational requirements from state to state, how lawyers should best be positioned to meet CLE requirements and how bar associations are best positioned to deliver them.”
Buchdahl, a Pennsylvania licensed attorney, has held numerous ABA leadership positions, including serving as past chair of the Law Practice Division and a board member and presenter for the ABA Institute for New Partners. He received his law degree from the Temple University School of Law in 1991, and his B.A., magna cum laude, from Temple in 1985.
Since 2001, HTMLawyers has provided attorney marketing and business development consulting services to law firms throughout the world. For more information, please visit www.HTMLawyers.com or our blog at https://www.marketingattorney.com.
