Your materials can be found under the Resources Tab. You can download individual chapters, or the entire document at one time, whichever you prefer.
If you desire, print the materials for your use. We hope you will consider using them electronically. Digital materials save resources and are 100% portable to be whereever you are working.
Be sure you have downloaded your materials to your device (laptop, tablet) before arriving at the program. Or, bring the materials you have printed.
Don’t forget to bring your device (laptop, tablet) to the CLE program with the CLE materials loaded and accessible.
Ensure your device is pre-charged before you arrive at the CLE program.
While tether charging stations will be available for recharging your device, these charging stations are not available to use for the entire duration of the program.
A limited number of printed materials will be available onsite, for purchase, at the program. The cost will be nominal, but again, there will be a limited number.
After the program concludes, you can also purchase the printed materials online for a nominal fee.

Please note that it is not necessary to wait for your state bar number to be issued before signing up for a PNA program. Once your bar number has been issued the State Bar will provide it to us. In our program reporting, we will take all the necessary steps to ensure that your state bar number is associated with your attendance and that your satisfaction of the PNA requirement is reported to the State Bar.
The Professionalism for New Attorneys (PNA) program is a two-day, 12-hour, mandatory CLE program designed to give newly licensed attorneys a greater understanding of law practice management, trust accounts, State Bar rules and requirements, professionalism and ethics and the grievance process.
