CLE Information

Alt Legal Community Events

We are happy to be able to provide CLE credit through California for select Alt Legal Community webinars and Alt Legal Connect sessions. California offers reciprocity with many states. If your state does accept reciprocity, you may be able to obtain CLE credit by filing a request with your state. If your question is not answered here, please send us an email at cle@altlegal.com or call us at (646) 665-7975.

  • To qualify for CLE credit, you need to actively watch the entire webinar or session. Listen for and write down the CLE code when it is provided: you will need to input the EXACT code in the circulated survey. If the code you provide is an exact match, we will email you a certificate of attendance.

  • We are unable to provide you with a certificate of attendance unless you attend the webinar or session live. However, check with your state’s Bar to see if you can still receive self-study credit.

  • Materials will be distributed in the chat during the presentation. In addition, you can find the materials for past webinars and sessions within the On-Demand section of our web site.

  • We have only applied for CLE credit in the state of California. However, several states offer reciprocity with California. Other states have a procedure for self-applying for CLE credit. More information can be found below.

  • If the code you input in the survey is the code provided during the webinar or session, you will get an email with the certificate shortly.

  • If you submitted the survey with the correct code but have not gotten an email with your certificate, please email us at cle@altlegal.com, and we will do what we can. Please include in your email the name, email address, and CLE code you inputted on the survey.
