MCLE quality should be improved

Forcing attorneys to make sure our skills are up to date at least once every three years is a good idea. However, as implemented, the MCLE requirement leaves a lot to be desired. The quality of MCLE providers varies from very poor to quite good, and there appears to be little relationship to price paid. Three years ago I was generally pleased with the quality of the materials I received, and the price was very reasonable, about $130 as I recall. However, my most recent experience has left me with a bad taste, and a plea to the State Bar that they check out providers and perhaps rate them. Otherwise, what does State Bar approval mean?
