Portal for Professional Development and Training
ALI-ABA Knowledge Portal provides small firms with tools for continual learning

PHILADELPHIA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The American Law Institute-American Bar Association
(ALI-ABA), the first national provider of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) and the industry leader in professional
development for over 60 years, today announced that Celeste Luce Estate Planning and Farmer & Associates,
PLLC have selected the ALI-ABA Knowledge Portal as their comprehensive online platform for CLE and legal
research. Both small practices will use the Knowledge Portal to help balance their professional careers and become
more efficient in their everyday practice.

“We understand that small firms have specific needs and face unique challenges,” said ALI-ABA Director of
Professional Relations Frank Tomasello. “Firms of all sizes are concerned with professional development and aim to
achieve high educational standards, but smaller firms do not always have the resources to accomplish this. The ALI-
ABA Knowledge Portal can help small firms continue to grow intellectually by providing high quality, relevant
content that drives continual learning.” 

The ALI-ABA Knowledge Portal is a subscription-based, online legal content and education resource that provides
attorneys with the tools to access and complete CLE requirements and conduct secondary research. Developed in
response to feedback from law firms and legal departments, the Knowledge Portal offers an array of content
including traditional substantive CLE courses, topical course webcasts and telephone seminars, litigation and
transactional skills programs, published books and periodicals, online materials, forms and more in a variety of
traditional and leading-edge delivery methods. All content can be cherry-picked to meet the needs of an individual
firm or group.

“As a sole practitioner, this kind of resource is critical to my success,” said Celeste Luce of Celeste Luce Estate
Planning. “Larger firms have the resources to provide their attorneys with comprehensive training on a variety of legal
subjects, while small firms must often rely on each other for additional knowledge and advice. The ALI-ABA
Knowledge Portal puts my practice on an even playing field with larger firms and gives me more freedom to stay up-
to-date on estate planning and other issues on my own time.” 

From an administrative standpoint, the ALI-ABA Knowledge Portal helps law firms and legal departments
streamline operations and save money while attracting, retaining and advancing top talent. Administrative features
allow professional development management to keep abreast of their attorneys’ CLE status and promote relevant
courses and materials.

“I didn’t think this type of resource would be available to a smaller firm,” said Heather Front, Paralegal Office
Manager for Farmer & Associates, PLLC. “Because of our small size, our attorneys perform a myriad of duties, and
their tight schedules can make fulfilling CLE requirements difficult. The on demand courses will allow our attorneys to
gain a better understanding of legal subjects while managing their busy schedules.” 

Celeste Luce is a respected asset protection and estate planning attorney based in Reno, Nevada. She has practiced
law for 23 years and has extensive experience working with families and businesses. Luce represents clients in all
matters relating to asset protection, estate planning, living trusts, probate, business planning and charitable giving.

Farmer & Associates, PLLC is a Naples, Florida-based law firm. With a national and international practice, Farmer 
& Associates advises businesses and investors on U.S. tax and business law matters. Farmer & Associates provides
relationship-driven solutions that deliver efficient results while maintaining trust and confidence. Attorneys are
frequently engaged by other law firms to serve as co-counsel on sophisticated tax matters.
