Providing Continuing Legal Education programs in-house as well as for external clients presents a unique set of challenges for law firms. Relying on disparate platforms to deliver and track legal content leads to inconsistencies in data, confusion, the need for manual data entry, and inefficiencies across the board.
The new integration between CE Manager and BeaconLive solves this problem – it streamlines workflows while dramatically reducing tedious administrative work. Legal content delivery in BeaconLive meets CLE compliance tracking in CE Manager.

Case Study Example:
A law firm client of BeaconLive deals with CLE and legal content in three different departments:
Marketing teams who deliver legal content to external clients
Professional Development teams who develop, deliver, and manage CLE courses for their internal attorneys
Human Resources teams who track CLE compliance status and required trainings for internal attorneys as well as evaluations and reviews of their partners
All three of these departments, like many other firms, use three different platforms for their specific needs. This creates inconsistent and non-integrated data, triples the manual processes, and is not conducive to a seamless and complete workflow. These teams are not able to collaborate and reuse content efficiently nor are they able to track data between each system.
With the integration between CE Manager and BeaconLive, all three of these departments are able to be on one streamlined platform with consistent data, with the ability to leverage legal content for both internal and external audiences in a collaborative and simple way.
Compliance status of their internal attorneys is tracked immediately in their CE Manager portal when taking a CLE course on BeaconLive’s platform. Firms and attorneys can see their compliance status change in real-time as they engage with content on BeaconLive’s platform.
Legal content can also easily be leveraged by the marketing team for external audiences. Different content catalogs are created for both the internal and the external audiences. These two separate catalogs can be managed for one-time entry of data on legal courses, with auto-population of data and information between the two.
Marketing teams can also use BeaconLive to produce and deliver their multi-day, multi-track events, and even include CLE accreditation when attendees participate in event sessions. All of the data on attendees and attorneys is automatically tracked in CE Manager.
From one-hour CLE webinars, to five-day marketing events, to CLE libraries and content catalogs -- all content delivery and data management is hosted in one comprehensive platform with the advanced integration of CE Manager and BeaconLive.
