Does this seminar qualify for CLE in my state? How will I get my credit?
Please review this chart and the dates to determine whether we offer CLE for your state. LawProse will report CLE credit according to state-bar rules. Many state bars require attorneys to self-report, such as Minnesota and New York. For certain states, we send out state-specific CLE certificates after you submit your attendance-verification form with the code words in our follow-up email.
If we don’t have CLE credit available for your state, you can still apply to your Bar for credit. At the end of the seminar, you’ll receive an email with and MCLE packet that includes:
- Seminar description with time agenda;
- Seminar brochure;
- Professor Bryan A. Garner’s CV; and
- Certificate of Attendance.
You can use these attachments to apply for credit with your state’s accrediting organization.
You’ll also receive an MCLE-reporting chart. This will have the details of who will report, how credit is reported, what is needed for credit, course numbers for self-reporting, etc.
Attendance-verification form. Why is this important?
Professor Garner will announce and show six code words during the seminar. There are spaces for each of these words on the attendance-verification form. To receive full credit for attendance/CLE credit, you’ll need to send back the form with all the information filled in.
Even if you don’t need CLE credit, you may need attendance verification for your employer. The only way we can provide that information to your employer is if we have this attendance-verification form filled out and timely submitted.
Please return the form by the deadline listed on the form.
If you miss the deadline, your state’s CLE agency may allow you to directly report your credits. Please see the CLE-reporting chart you’ll receive after the seminar for more details. LawProse isn’t responsible for reporting/logging attendance or handling other CLE matters if your attendance form is returned after the deadline.
New York Attorney-Affirmation Form
Attorneys licensed in New York who want to report the credit for Skills credit, then you’ll also need to turn in the NY Attorney-Affirmation form with the code words filled out by the deadline.
You’ll receive a New York Approved-Jurisdiction Policy CLE packet for you to use in your self-reporting.
If you miss the deadline, NY CLE may allow you to directly report your credits. Please see the CLE-reporting chart you’ll receive after the seminar for more details. LawProse isn’t responsible for reporting/logging attendance or handling other CLE matters if your attendance form is returned after the deadline.
