Frequently Asked Questions
If I’m registered for the conference will I automatically get my CLE Credits?
A: NO. You must sign in at the CLE station, complete the necessary CLE forms, and turn them in at the CLE station before departing the conference.
What do I need in order to sign up for CLE?
A: You need to have your bar number for all states in which you would receive credit.
What if I cannot attend the whole conference? Can I receive partial credit?
A: YES. When you turn in the CLE Attendance Worksheet and other required CLE forms, you will indicate the number of hours that you actually attended.
Do I need to send my certificate of attendance to the state bar/s or will the National Trial Lawyers report my attendance to them?
A: That depends on which state(s) you are claiming CLE credit in. Some states allow the sponsor to report attendance and others require that the individual attorney do so. When you sign in at the CLE station, your CLE forms will include an instruction sheet that indicates whether you must report your CLE attendance or whether the National Trial Lawyers will report your CLE attendance.
What if I do not sign in for CLE on site at the Conference?
A: We can assist you with securing your CLE credit but you may incur fees depending on the state. It may also significantly delay the amount of time it takes for your credit to be posted to your record, so if you are up against a filing deadline, we cannot guarantee that your CLE credit will be posted in time.
