Webinar/Teleconference Policy


The Judicial Division, JD Conferences and JD Committees will produce webinars and teleconferences on a regular basis to create educational opportunities for members. This policy explains how those webinars and teleconferences will be scheduled, approved and presented as well as how the revenue will be distributed.


All proposed programs by any JD Conference or Committee must be reviewed in advance and coordinated through the JD Program Committee to avoid scheduling and programming conflicts with other JD programs and with ABACLE. The proposal should be submitted for approval to the JD Program Committee 8 weeks before the desired presentation date. If CLE credit will be requested, that request should be included in the proposal. Webinars and teleconferences are subject to all policies of ABACLE, if CLE is requested.

As part of the ABA Free CLE Library program, the JD must submit 2 programs per year to that library. The JD Program Committee and the producing Conference or Committee will choose which programs to submit to the Free CLE Library.


Pricing for webinars and teleconferences will comply with ABA CLE pricing guidelines.


JD Conferences may produce webinars or teleconferences from their own resources without contribution from the JD. If they are produced through the JD, the producing Conference and the JD will share the revenues. The proceeds will first pay the direct costs of the program that are incurred by the JD such as accreditation fees, technology charges, etc. The first

$500 net profits will be split between the JD and the producing Conference on a 50/50 basis. All profits after the first $500 will go to the producing Conference. Revenues from webinars or teleconferences developed by a JD Committee will go to the JD Program Support Fund to support additional programming.

The JD may collaborate with non-JD entities to develop and co-sponsor webinars or teleconferences. The Program Committee Chair and JD Chair may negotiate the terms for revenue sharing for those programs
