Required sponsor documentation has been forwarded to and credit requested from MCLE states with general requirements for all lawyers. Lawyers seeking credit in Pennsylvania must pay fees of $1.50 per credit hour directly to the Pennsylvania CLE Board. The ABA pays applicable fees in other states where the sponsor is required to do so and in states where a late fee may become applicable. Please be aware that each state has its own rules and regulations, including its definition of "CLE"; therefore, certain programs may not receive credit in some states. Contact Ben Woodson at 312-988-5325 or firstname.lastname@example.org for the number of CLE credit hours approved by any particular state.
