CLE 101

A hundred attorneys sit in a hotel ballroom, awash in the glow of a PowerPoint presentation. A monotone speaker lectures on a topic with little relevance to his audience. A few attendees nod off to sleep. A dozen skillfully type away on their BlackBerrys. The rest can't wait to break for lunch.
