Continuing Legal Education

Continuing Legal Education credits are mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE) credits which are required for lawyers to practice law within a particular jurisdiction. Each state bar has its own requirements and it is the responsibility of the attorney seeking CLEs to know and fulfill such requirements. Not all 50 states require CLEs. Further, the Food and Drug Law Institute's (FDLI) courses are typically approved for substantive credit; sometimes ethics credits are approved.

FDLI regularly applies to Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio for CLEs for in-person meetings. New York recognizes the Pennsylvania approvals. For self-study credit, FDLI applies only to Ohio. (If you would like to apply for self-study credit for Ohio, please contact Dawn Tullis at for more information.) All other states may or may not accept the credit of one of these MCLE states. It is the responsibility of the attorney to investigate this prior to registering/attending an FDLI meeting. CLEs are applied for prior to the meeting; FDLI will not apply for CLEs for past programs.

As approvals are received, updated CLE information will be posted on FDLI's website with the respective meeting.
