MVLC Brown Bag FAQs

How do I attend?
You may attend in person at Marquette Law School or online.
 
Is free parking available for attendees coming from off-campus?
Yes. You must pre-resister at least 24 hours in advance for parking to be available. Parking is available on a first come, first served basis in the Eckstein Hall Underground Parking Structure. There are two entrances: (1) 11th Street, between Wisconsin and Clybourn and (2) Clybourn Street - turn west (right) from 11th and enter the first driveway, which looks like a loading dock.
 
If I cannot attend on the date of the presentation, will it be available for viewing?
The presentation will be archived on the website. Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit cannot be given to those who attend after the end of the live presentation.
 
Do I need to pre-register?
Yes, this is required so that we can communicate important event details to you and contact any online participants in the case of technical difficulties during the presentation. A registration link is available on the Brown Bag main page.
 
If I attend online, how do I get CLE or pro bono credit?
The Law School approves 1.0 CLE credit for these presentations and law students may count the time toward their Pro Bono Society hours. CLE and pro bono credit can only be given to in-person attendees and online attendees who view the live version of the presentation. To obtain credit for online viewing, you must fill out the online attendance form within 30 minutes of the presentation. During the presentation, an attendance code will be read in two parts. Both parts of the code must be reported in the online attendance form to be eligible for credit.
 
When will the CLE appear on the Board of Bar Examiners (BBE) CLE Reporting Website? 
The CLE will not appear immediately. If fact, it can take several months. The Law School has authority from the Board of Bar Examiners to approve CLE programs (except those involving ethics). Just because the Law School has approved the CLE does not mean the BBE knows about it. The Law School submits quarterly notices to the BBE for all CLE programs held at the Law School. Once the notices are received by BBE, the course will appear on their website. This takes time. Attendees may self-report their attendance using the General Program Approval (GPA) form within the BBE's CLE reporting site. CLE reporting questions should be directed to https://clereporting.wicourts.gov/.
 
How do I view handouts if I attend online?
Go to the Brown Bag main page and you access them before the presentation begins.
 
How do I ask a question if I attend online?
You may ask questions during the presentation by clicking on the speech bubble icon. Please enter your email address so a response can be sent if needed.
 
What should I do if I have technical difficulties during the webcast? 
Try refreshing your screen or closing your browser window and re-opening it, as this resolves many issues. If you continue to experience problems during the presentation, email mulawtech@marquette.edu during the presentation. If you believe you missed a code due to a technical difficulty, email mvlc.law@marquette.edu.
