In-Person Public Seminar Policies

LawProse Policy on CLE Credit

LawProse applies for accreditation in those states where we conduct live public LawProse seminars. Where state Bars require it, we submit attendees’ names as they are listed on the sign-in sheet on the day of the seminar. If you are seeking CLE credit for a state other than where that seminar is being held, please apply directly to the appropriate state Bar.

Fall 2020 Live Online Advanced Legal Writing & Editing Season:

It has already been approved for credits in Texas, New York, and California. Approval in several other states is pending. Please check with us for more information for your particular state.

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:

  • seminar description with time agenda;
  • seminar brochure;
  • Professor Bryan A. Garner’s CV; and
  • LawProse Certificate of Completion.

You can take these attachments and use them to apply for credit with your state Bar.

If you need credit in other states, you may take the certificate of attendance you’ll receive at the seminar and submit it to your state bar with its application, the course description from this page, and Professor Garner’s CV (inside the course book).

And we can also report your completed seminar hours to Texas—please email (info@lawprose.org) us your name, the course you completed, the date you finished, and your bar number.

LawProse web seminars have been approved for CLE credit in most states where allowed—we do not maintain approval for all our courses for all these states. If you’re seeking credit in a state other than where we are accredited providers, please take the certificate of attendance from the program and submit it to the state bar you are seeking credit from. A few states don’t yet approve web seminars. Please check with your state bar to see whether web seminars qualify.

Discounts & Watching as a Group

Discounts are available for groups simultaneously viewing a self-paced online seminar using one computer connection. When one participant pays the full list price, each additional viewer pays for an additional-viewer license—again, if all registrants view on one screen together. You can register your group by calling LawProse at 214-691-8588 or emailing info@lawprose.org or directly on our e-learning site.

Please note that the list price is for the purchase of an individual license for a single viewing by a single viewer. You may purchase additional discounted additional-viewer licenses on our e-learning site or contacting us at 214-691-8588. We ask for your cooperation in protecting our intellectual-property rights. We’re happy to help direct you to any particular course topic you’re looking for, to discuss group pricing, and to answer any other questions you may have.

Please see our FAQs on Self-Paced Online Seminars.

Webinar (Moderated & Live) Courses Policies

LawProse Policy on CLE Credit

We are an accredited CLE provider for online training in California, New York, and Texas. We can issue CLE attendance certificates for California and New York. For Texas, we’ll report your hours directly to the Texas State Bar—please email us (info@lawprose.org) with your name, the course you completed, the date you finished, and your bar number. We’ll verify your license purchase and attendance before providing certificates or submitting your information for credit to a state Bar.

If you’re seeking CLE credit in a jurisdiction other than Texas, California, or New York, you’ll need to apply to the state directly.

Group Discounts

Discounts are available for group registrations. A group consists of two or more attendees together in one room using one login connection. When one attendee pays the full tuition rate for a primary license, each additional attendee will receive a discounted tuition rate. Each group-registration discount is determined per course.

For more information, please email us (info@lawprose.org) with the course you’re considering for group viewing and also how many people you estimate for your group.

The listed tuition for the purchase of a primary license is for a single viewing by a single person. You may purchase additional-viewer licenses for a discounted tuition rate if the additional viewing occurs when someone watches with the primary-license holder.

We thank you for helping us protect our intellectual-property rights by abiding by our policies. It’s our pleasure to help direct you to any particular course topic you’re looking for. Thank you.
