CLE & CPE Credits

Which states accredit Strafford programs for CLE?

Strafford is an approved sponsor for continuing legal education in states that accredit webinars.  Refer to our state CLE map for information about your state.

How do I get continuing legal education (CLE) credit for attending a live webinar?

Only registered and paid attendees will receive continuing education credits.

To obtain CLE credits you must have a paid registration (either as a line or a colleague) and participate in the live webinar.  Watch for the letter codes that you will see while viewing the program. You will want to jot these letter codes down as your accrediting agency may require these codes as proof of course completion. After the webinar is over, each attorney must confirm their participation by completing and submitting an Attendance Affirmation/Evaluation.  A link to this will be in the Thank You email that is sent immediately following the program.  You may also request an Attendance Affirmation/Evaluation from cle@straffordpub.com.

Provided all the above conditions have been satisfied by 5PM eastern the day of the webinar, a Certificate of Attendance will be emailed within 24 hours.

Refer to our state CLE map for specific information about your state on this format.

How do I get CPE credit for attending a live webinar?

To obtain CPE credits for a Strafford webinar, you must participate in the live event via a computer and affirm your participation by responding to verification prompts that are displayed throughout the program.  In addition, you must confirm your participation by completing and submitting an Attendance Affirmation/Evaluation after the webinar.

For some webinars, you are required to order CPE credit processing before the program.  CPE processing must be ordered and paid by 2PM the day of the program to receive a Certificate of Attendance within 24 hours.

A link to the Attendance Affirmation/Evaluation will be in the thank you email that you will receive immediately following the program.

Why is there a separate charge for CPE credit processing?

We have a separate processing charge for those attendees seeking optional CPE credits so that only those who need CPE credits incur those costs.

Each attendee seeking CPE credits should be registered for a line and pay the additional $35 CPE processing fee.

For programs offering both CLE and CPE, you may attend as a colleague to receive CPE credit.

Can a group of listeners obtain CPE for a live webinar?

To obtain CPE credits for a Strafford webinar while participating via a group, attendees must participate in the live event via a computer, affirm participation by responding to verification prompts that are displayed throughout the program, complete and submit back to Strafford a proctor form. Submission of this form is required in order for Strafford to process CPE for GROUP participation (in one room on one computer).  

Each person requesting CPE processing must be registered for a line or as a colleague (even those listening in a group) and pay the additional $35 CPE processing fee.  Please contact customer service at 1-800-926-7926 to request a proctor form or to register additional people.
 

Can I get CPE credits for a downloadable webinar or a DVD?

Self-study CPE credits are not offered on downloadable webinars or DVD’s.
