RALEIGH — Campbell Law School Dean J. Rich Leonard was recently invited by Berkeley Law School to speak about his new book, “From Welcome to Windhoek: A Judge’s Journey,” as part of the Berkeley Judicial Institute‘s B-CLE offerings.

The Berkeley Judicial Institute (BJI)’s mission is to build bridges between judges and academics and to promote an ethical, resilient and independent judiciary, according to its website. Read more about its mission at this link.

Enrollment in courses and CLE credits are complimentary within the B-CLE  platform. A B-CLE account is required to enroll for courses. Subscribe here at no charge. There is “Recognition & Elimination of Bias” CLE credit available for Leonard’s program but the B-CLE is only certified to give credit for California. If you are seeking credit for another jurisdiction, please check with your state bar to determine if California CLE credits are recognized, through reciprocity, in your jurisdiction.
