Continuing Legal Education

Continuing Legal Education credits are awarded for attending most live FDLI programs.

FDLI applies directly to Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia for CLE approvals.   CLE forms are made available during the afternoon of the last day of the conference.

FDLI applies for CLE credits prior to each meeting but sometimes the approval is not granted until after the meeting. As approvals are received, updated CLE information will be posted online, and you can request to be notified.

FDLI does not currently offer CLE credit for webinars.

Virginia Approval

FDLI is an accredited provider in the state of Virginia.   Onsite, attorneys should pick up the Virginia Certificate of Attendance and certify attendance online at www.vsb.org.

Pennsylvania Approval

FDLI applies for CLE credit in Pennsylvania but is not an accredited provider.   Onsite, attorneys should pick up two forms, the credit request form and certificate of attendance.   To obtain credit, submit these forms to the Pennsylvania State Bar along with a check for the number of credit hours attended.

Ohio Approval

FDLI applies for CLE credit in the state of Ohio but is not an accredited provider.    Onsite, attorneys should sign in with their name, attorney number, and number of hours attended.  FDLI will report the credits to the Ohio CLE Commission within 30 days of the event. 

Need Approval in Another State?

Many states offer CLE reciprocity.  Virginia and Ohio approvals are recognized by the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, and Tennessee. Pennsylvania approvals are also recognized by all the above listed states except for New York.

Please Note: Each state bar has its own requirements and they may change over time, it is the responsibility of the attorney to know and fulfill the requirements. For more information regarding CLE requirements in your state please visit the directory provided via the Continuing Legal Education Regulators Association.

FDLI is committed to providing high quality educational programming.  If you are not satisfied with a program you attended, please notify us.
Attendees are encouraged to pre-register for all conferences.  Individuals may also register on site on a “space-available” basis; late registrants are not guaranteed materials or meals. Please contact FDLI to confirm space availability.

Up to five days prior to the meeting, registrations may be cancelled for a full refund (less a $75 fee) by notifying FDLI in writing. All refunds will be applied against the original form of payment. If FDLI cancels a meeting, FDLI is not responsible for any airfare, hotel, or other costs incurred by registrants. Some program topics and speakers may be subject to change without notice.
