CLE Credits

Everything you need to know

How to Get CLE Credits & Prove Your Attendance

  • CLE credits were requested during registration, which also allowed you to provide your bar number(s) and jurisdiction(s). If you are not sure whether you did so, or if you would like to add or update your bar info, please contact anna.williamson@rila.org to do so at any time.
  • CLE-eligible sessions (general + non-conversational breakouts) will have a poll pop-up sometime during the middle of each session. Be sure to respond to this as many states require proof that you actively listened to the session.
  • After the conference, we will send you your personalized Certificate of Attendance(s). Depending on the jurisdiction, it may take some time before you receive your certificate(s).
Our virtual platform allows for simple attendance tracking- no complicated check-ins needed. It’s that simple!

Q: Are recordings eligible for CLE credits?

The general session and breakout session recordings are all likely to be eligible for CLE credits in most jurisdictions.

Q. How do I view Sessions and Claim CLE Credits?

A. 
  • Visit the conference platform website to access the recordings.
  • Watch each full recording from start to finish (viewing times will be tracked and recorded).
  • While you watch, a CLE credit code will appear for 60 seconds at a random time. Record this code to submit for proof of participation, along with the date you watched the video.
  • After viewing all sessions you intend to claim credit for and recording the codes/dates, visit the CLE Credit Request form. You can enter all codes and dates on this form.

 Important Notes
  • Please only submit the form once after you have viewed all sessions you want to claim — multiple submissions will delay your request. All of these credits are being counted under the same event, so you will only receive one Certificate of Attendance for all sessions you view. Many states find it difficult to amend credits or require a late fee to process them.
  • Please ensure that on-demand sessions are eligible for credit in your jurisdiction before viewing. Some jurisdictions also have special instructions for when to view the recordings and how to report them. For instance, if you are in Minnesota, do not view any sessions until the on-demand program has been accredited. Visit the CLE Info Page for our jurisdiction breakdown.
  • Please do not request credit again for a session you already viewed during the live conference (no double-dipping for credit).
  • If you have substantive questions concerning your session, contact us to get in touch with a presenter.

Q. Do I need to do anything else to get CLE Credits if I attended the live event?

A. Viewers of our live conference do not need to take any steps at this time. RILA is currently processing all conference attendance and will report it if applicable in your jurisdiction.

All attendees will eventually receive a certificate of attendance for each of their jurisdictions. This is a lengthy process and can take several weeks. Due to the higher-than-ever turnout, we are expecting a longer turnaround time this year.

Q. How will I track my attendance?

A: Simply respond to the polls that pop up during CLE-eligible sessions. For the recorded sessions which you can watch after the conference, a code will appear during the video which you should write down and submit when requesting credit from us.

Q: Which jurisdictions have approved the conference and how many credits will I be awarded? To which other jurisdictions have you applied?

A: We request credit, apply reciprocity, or otherwise pursue credits in every jurisdiction requested by any attendee. Please see our jurisdiction chart below the FAQ. For pending jurisdictions, the certificates of attendance with the approved number of credits will be issued after receiving approval from the authorizing entity.

Q: The jurisdiction list is published, but I don’t see my jurisdiction listed. What do I do?

A: Please reach out to Anna Williamson (anna.williamson@rila.org). We will ensure that your jurisdiction is included.

Q: What sessions are eligible for CLE Credits?

All general sessions and presentation-style breakout sessions will likely be eligible for CLE credits in most jurisdictions. The Retail Roundtables and Ask a GC sessions will likely not be eligible. 

Q: When/how will I receive my Certificate of Attendance?

A: You will receive a Certificate of Attendance by email after the conference. This could take several weeks depending on the approval status of the jurisdiction. We thank you in advance for your patience as we have more attendees than ever due to our virtual format.

If you have an impending CLE deadline, please contact Anna Williamson (anna.williamson@rila.org) to make a request to expedite, but keep in mind that many states have extended CLE deadlines due to COVID- check with your jurisdiction’s CLE administrative body to see what may have changed.

Q: How will my credits be calculated?

A: By the amount of credits approved by the jurisdiction in which you are licensed and by the number of sessions you attend. Credit amounts varies by state.

Q: How can I find out if the Conference staff has my bar information on file?

A: Please reach out to Anna Williamson (anna.williamson@rila.org).

NOTE: In many cases attendees will receive separate certificates of attendance for on demand viewing. Additionally, with on demand viewing, you will be able to view more hours than listed in many jurisdictions due to the availability of concurrent breakouts - for some states there is a separate course code to accommodate the extra hours, and for some it is simply noted on the certificate of attendance.
