An interview with Lawline.com President David Schnurman by Nancy Patterson of LITIG8R TECH
David Schnurman is driven, creative, optimistic and above all, a life-long learner. He is an attorney, entrepreneur and also a very nice guy who puts “taking time to help others” as a core value for his impressive company, Lawline.com.
Lawline.com is not only a leader in providing online Continuing Legal Education for attorneys, but they are also way out front in the e-learning revolution. In early 2011, Lawline.com became the first CLE provider to stream video courses onto mobile devices. In addition, Lawline.com has also partnered with bar associations, law schools, and CLE providers across the country in order to provide its customers with the highest quality programming. Although the company has issued more than a million paid CLE certificates to date, their entire CLE library is available for free; you only pay when you need to earn CLEs. It is also a wonderful community to teach, and as a bonus, faculty receive all their CLE courses for free.
On behalf of LITIG8R TECH, I am honored to share our recent conversation with David Schnurman.
