High quality, reasonably priced CLE opportunities
Cost:
There is absolutely no cost to attend these programs, and no payment is expected. If, however, you wish to make a small voluntary payment, you may do so after the program. For full information, read why this program is free. You will receive full CLE credit whether or not you decide to pay.
Credit:
One standard CLE credit applied for in Iowa (activity number 190489), Minnesota (event code 206558), and Wisconsin.
In Addition:
  • Alaska: Alaska Bar members may claim credit for attendance at CLE programs offered in or from other states if the program has been accredited by another MCLE jurisdiction
  • Arizona: The State Bar of Arizona does not accredit programs for the MCLE requirement. The Rules and Regulations are predicated on the assumption that attorneys can evaluate CLE activities offered based on the guidelines and report their activities by affidavit.
  • Arkansas: Upon receipt of a completed certificate of attendance form confirming attendance at an out-of-state continuing legal education program approved by the situs state, the attorney shall be entitled to CLE credits in Arkansas.
  • California: Program is eligible for California CLE credit only if the attorney is calling in from outside of California. The program cannot be taken for California credit if you call in from California.
  • Colorado: Colorado attorneys should submit a Colorado Affidavit form along with a statement certifying that the CLE program is accredited in another mandatory CLE state.
  • Florida: Courses approved by other state bars are generally acceptable for use toward satisfying CLE requirement but attorneys must first submit a CLE Application for Course Attendance Credit.
  • Hawaii: Program is eligible for Hawaii CLE credit only if the attorney is calling in from outside of Hawaii. The program cannot be taken for Hawaii credit if you call in from Hawaii.
  • Iowa: 1.0 CLE credit applied for

  • Minnesota: 1.0 CLE credit applied for.
  • Montana: Montana will honor the approval given by other CLE jurisdictions. Simply attach documentation of the other state's approval to your affidavit at the end of the reporting year.
  • New Jersey: New Jersey attorneys who are taking courses approved for CLE by another state will receive 1:1 credit for courses approved in that jurisdiction through reciprocity.
  • New York: Attorneys may claim New York CLE hours for programs accredited Wisconsin.
  • Wisconsin: 1.0 CLE credit applied for.
  • Other States: CLE credit is available in many other states if the participating attorney applies for credit. For further information on reciprocity, see the Baran CLE Reciprocity Guide.
Why is This Program Free? A Message From The Sponsor
"This program is absolutely free, and there is no obligation to pay any fee whatsoever. These free CLE programs are an experiment on my part.
"I expect that most of the attorneys attending will do so because the program is free, and I honestly don't mind. For some attorneys, the cost of maintaining a license and earning CLE credits can be a significant burden, and I'm glad I'm able to help. But I'm also aware that some businesses are profitable with a "pay as you want" fee structure. This business model has been used successfully in the music industry, by restaurants and even by a taxi company. This article is what gave me the idea to try this.
"This model can also work very well for Continuing Legal Education. Even though not all are able, many of the participants in my free programs are willing to make a voluntary payment to support this reasonably priced alternative. Because of the high price of traditional CLE programs, it is my hope that these low-cost programs will be sustainable through voluntary payment. If this method proves successful, then I can continue to make programs, including my popular ethics courses, available on the same "pay as you want" basis.
"Therefore, I ask you to consider making a voluntary payment after taking this free program. You may pay whatever you please. The program is free, and zero is a perfectly acceptable option. Of course, if everyone pays zero, my future free programs will be infrequent. You can select any amount you wish. To give you some idea of a reasonable price, please consider the following"
