The mission of ABACLE is to maintain the Association’s role as the leader in continuing legal education by partnering with the Association’s entities and diverse membership to create and deliver educational programs and services to our members and the legal profession that are innovative and of the highest quality.

High Quality CLE

Only the American Bar Association offers high-quality CLE in such a comprehensive range of relevant topics to benefit every legal professional across the nation. ABA members enjoy reduced rates for most of our programs. So, if you’re required by your state to earn CLE credits, or if you want to stay current on the latest legal developments and opportunities, choose CLE from the ABA.
