Continuing Legal Education
Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits are awarded for attending most in-person FDLI programs.
FDLI applies for CLE credit in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Forms are made available during the afternoon of the last day of the event.
FDLI applies for CLE credits prior to each meeting but sometimes the approval is not granted until after the conference. As approvals are received, updated CLE information will be posted online. You may also request to be notified.
FDLI does not currently offer CLE credit for webinars, nor New to Food and Drug Law events.
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.
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.
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, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and North Dakota. Pennsylvania approvals are also recognized by all the above listed states except for New York.

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.
