CLE Information

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for CLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.

To have credit for this program posted to your CLE total, email or fax the Uniform Certificate of Attendance and the program agenda to the Florida Bar. View contact information for the Florida Bar. There is no fee for you to use the reciprocity provision. 

Idaho: You may self-submit this program for CLE approval by sending the Application for CLE credit to the Idaho State Bar with the required attachments.
