NCBJ submits applications and the written educational materials for credit approval to each of the states that require CLE credits. NCBJ has applied for credit approval, but cannot predict when any specific state will approve or deny a program. NCBJ assumes that the combination of all programs scheduled October 28 - 31 in San Antonio will offer at least 14 CLE credits. Due to concurrent/overlapping programs, any individual is likely to earn 10 to 11 credits max.
Where required, NCBJ has also applied for CLE credit specifically for the pre-recorded, non-live presentation of some sessions. Each state has its own rules regarding CLE credit for pre-recorded programs. Please check your state bar or state supreme court CLE website for their policies. NCBJ is not able to guarantee that each non-live program will qualify for CLE credit in your state(s) of licensure.
NCBJ live streaming plus NCBJ and affiliates video recorded programs are considered California “participatory” credits. Many states offer reciprocal credit for programs that meet the California Bar requirements. NCBJ’s educational programs offered by live streaming, or recorded and offered On Demand from the NCBJ Online Bankruptcy Learning system are treated by California as participatory educational credit due to NCBJ compliance with the requirements related to attendance record keeping, learner attention auditing and certificates of participation issued upon completion.
ABA administers CLEs for their programs. NCBJ attendees must be registered with ABA to get CLEs for ABA programs (a separate fee when registering for the conference) in order to receive CLEs through ABA. Contact Katie Koszyk at ABA directly with questions regarding their programs. Any NCBJ Registrant may attend ABA programs without earning credit or paying additional fees.
