Easy Charitable Works Via The #Progressive Slate

One easy way to do charity is to help worthy charitable causes win online contests. There's a zillion of them, and I don't doubt some are scams, but the Pepsi Refresh Challenge is one I've noticed is actually for reals - it really does award the money, so I don't have any hesitation urging you to do the following for each day this month (December 2011).

Log into your Facebook profile, then come back to this email and click on each of the five links below.
You can cast 5 more votes using text messages. The numbers next to each group are the codes you can use to send in a text message vote. Simply type in the number for the group you want to vote for and send it to Pepsi at 73774. You can vote up to five times a day using text messages!
The contest is over when December's over. To keep up on new ones, and to receive daily reminders to vote, see The Progressive Slate at

End-Of-Year #Ethics Roundup by 4freeCLE

Here's something from one of my more active web projects:
4freeCLE Presents:
End-Of-Year Ethics Roundup!

If you need to earn a few more ethics credits before the end of they year, try satisfying that need through free online programs!
Most of these events are approved for credit in a number of jurisdictions; if YOUR jurisdiction is not listed, contact your state bar to see if you can apply for credit anyway. It may be as simple as filling out a form, which represents an immense cost savings to you!

Recorded Ethics Credit
Recorded programs have the practical advantage that you can view them anytime you want, and re-view them as needed. Frankly, sometimes ethics matters are difficult and can benefit from a review: 

This is the only online ethics seminar I've discovered between now and the end of the year, but it looks great! If I find any more, I'll be sure to catalog them:
More Free CLE
You'll find a great many more free CLE events, both live and recorded, at

If you know of a free CLE event not listed, please send it to the editor so we may include it in the next issue. The first to tell us of an event gets credit for the announcement, a link to their website, and the thanks of grateful legal professionals everywhere!

Feel Free To Forward This To Colleagues Who May Want Free CLE. 
4freeCLE is, and always will be, free!
