Go paperless. Get the course materials on a USB flash drive.
F  or this course, you may receive the course materials either in hard copy or as a single easy-to-store USB flash drive containing the course
   articles as word-searchable PDFs. Open with Adobe® Acrobat® or the Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, search by keyword, and get results in
seconds. In fact, there’s no quicker way to do research with TexasBarCLE materials.
Whichever format you choose, as a registrant you may still download PDFs of the course articles from TexasBarCLE.com at no charge when
they become available 6-8 weeks after the course. Even so, the USB option gives you a convenient package of the materials at the live
course — much earlier than by acquiring the individual downloads later on.
