Special notice:

Effective January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 the CLE Board is adopting a temporary policy to recognize live online programming by accredited distance learning providers as live (non-capped) credit towards lawyers’ CLE requirement. This will acknowledge the engagement and real-time learning experience synchronous training provides while extending compliance accommodations for attorneys. The LBA is an accredited distance learning provider, so all virtual courses offered by the LBA during 2021 will be considered live CLE courses.
