Pay What You Want.
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, future free programs will be infrequent. You can select any amount you wish.
  • 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
