Sharon Reuler - Presentations

 
It is an honor and a privilege for any lawyer to be invited by her peers to provide continuing legal education to other lawyers. The standards and expectations within the profession are high, especially at courses sponsored by the State Bar of Texas, which is one of the most well regarded CLE providers in the nation. As with most CLE presenters, Sharon receives no payment for speaking and writing to audiences of lawyers. It’s a labor of love fueled by Sharon’s passion for educating the legal community about the emerging and evolving law of property owners associations. The articles sponsored by the State Bar of Texas are available on the State Bar’s Online Library – for free to subscribers, and for a modest fee to non-subscribers.
