Continuing Legal Education (CLE)

Richard H. Waxman CLE Panelist

In 2015 the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education (NACLE) invited Richard Waxman to join its faculty to present lectures about business law and employment law topics to practicing attorneys. In New York State, lawyers are required to take 24 credit hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) every two years. These classes were historically presented live at schools, hotels and other theatre type spaces. Today they are most often provided through electronic means, so attorneys can participate while sitting in front of their computers or smartphones. The audiences include attorneys with various types of experience, running the gamut from lawyers straight out of school who are learning a topic from scratch…all the way to seasoned practitioners who may be knowledgeable in one area of law but wish to expand their practice into another field or those who have substantial knowledge in a field, but wish to fine tune that knowledge. After attending one of Richard Waxman’s CLE courses, lawyers have engaged him to act as “back office” or “co-counsel” for merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions or have caused their client to engage him directly as lead counsel.

Mr. Waxman’s courses for NACLE have concentrated in the areas of corporate/business law and management side employment law. His corporate/business courses have included several that focus on M&A skills. These courses include:

  • ABCs of Buying and Selling Businesses for lawyers or lay persons with little or no M&A experience1
  • M&A Purchase Agreements for more experienced lawyers.2
  • Other Documents Required for M&A Transactions.3


Other courses for corporate/business lawyers include:

  • Partnership Agreements for start-up corporation/LLC owners.4
  • Commercial Arbitration clauses and agreements.5
  • Website Terms of Use and Privacy Policies.6


Some of his management side employment law courses include:

  • Non-Compete, Non-Disclosure and Similar Restrictive Covenants7
  • Sexual Harassment Prevention Training8
