Accreditation on Formats: Live Video Broadcasts, “Live” Re-Broadcasts and On-Demand CLEs
Live Video Broadcasts
Live video broadcasts are new live CLE programs being streamed and recorded for the first time. All of these programs qualify for “Live” CLE credit in all states except LA and PA—these two states require in-person attendance to qualify for “Live” CLE credit.
“Live” Re-broadcasts are replays of previous recorded CLE programs, set on a specific date and time and where the original presenting speakers calls in live at the end of the event to answer questions. This “live” element allows for “live” Re-broadcast CLEs to qualify for “Live” CLE credits in most states. [The following states DO NOT allow for “live” CLE credits on re-broadcast CLEs: NM and LA.]
On-demand CLE classes are available 24/7 via the myLawCLE portal.

These CLEs can be viewed at anytime and only qualify for self-study CLE credits.

This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, CT, FL, GA, ME, MO, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, SD and WV. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.
