What is the difference between an E-Book and a PDF?

ABA e-books use the EPUB (.epub) file format for an e-book reader application or a dedicated e-book reader. E-book readers allow for text to potentially be changed to make reading on a screen easier. By contrast, PDF (.pdf) files tend to maintain strict "print-like" layouts that can be read on screen or printed. PDF files are not re-flowable, their text size cannot be adjusted for display on various devices.

Can I print an e-book?

E-books are designed to be read on the screen. Therefore, while e-books can often be printed, it is generally not recommended. A small number of our e-books may restrict printing through Digital Rights Management (DRM).

Why won't my e-book open?

Our e-books use a EPUB format. While EPUB is a widely supported file format, many applications and devices are not designed to work with it.

CLE Credit

Will I get CLE Credit for my meeting?

Review the meeting’s website for CLE accreditation information. State-by-state information on accreditation is available. The ABA requests CLE credit for many of its in-person meetings, webinars and some on-demand products.  States typically decide on CLE qualification 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted.  For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.
