About The Law Education Institute
The Law Education Institute was established in 1980 by Attorneys James J. Podell and Peggy L. Podell for the purpose of presenting outstanding continuing legal education programs. Long active in Bar activities, Jim and Peggy developed the National CLE Conference into one of the preeminent programs in the country.

Their insistence on high quality speakers and programming has resulted in ABA sections and numerous State Bar and other associations co-sponsoring the programs. It is in the memory of Jim Podell that Colorado Bar Association CLE continues the tradition of this Conference.
