For those attendees who request and sign up for CLE credit at our conferences, IPED LLC, an affiliate of Nixon Peabody LLP, will seek approval for continuing legal education credits as needed. IPED is an accredited provider of continuing legal education in CA, IL, NY, PA, and RI. Please fill out the continuing education forms at the registration desk if you need credits. State bar associations have the final authority on the acceptance of individual courses, and IPED will do everything to ensure that the requirements are met when seeking approval.
MCLE states determine CLE credit hours by dividing the running time of instructional programs by either 60 or 50 minutes. For example, a 90-minute program may earn 1.5 hours of CLE credit in a state that bases its credit on a 60-minute credit hour, and 1.8 hours in a state that bases its credit on a 50-minute credit hour. Some jurisdictions round down credit to the nearest 1/2 or 1/4 hour.
The following jurisdictions have a 60-minute credit hour: AK, AL, AZ, AR, CA, DE, GA, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MN, MS, MT, NE, NC, ND, NH, NM, NV, OH, OR, PA, PR, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WA, and WY.
The following jurisdictions have a 50-minute credit hour: CO, FL, GU, MO, NJ, NY, OK, RI, VI, WV, and WI.

IPED is not an accrediting body or regulatory agency, but a provider of continuing legal education. The content on this page is for informational and educational purposes only. CLE accreditation is given on a state-by-state basis. There is no nationwide accreditation since the MCLE programs are administered by the state supreme courts through a special CLE commission or board. Each state has its own rules and regulations that indicate what qualifies for CLE credit. Certain programs, subjects, and formats may not receive credit in some states, and there may be specific rules regarding who can earn credit, or the maximum number of credit hours that may be earned with specific formats. Please contact your state MCLE regulatory entity for specific questions about your MCLE rules. For more information on all states’ CLE rules and regulations, visit www.clereg.org.
Continuing education credit totals may be subject to change if the conference schedule changes due to canceled or added sessions. Continuing education requests will be processed within 30 days after the conference.
