NCBJ manages CLE & CPE credit reporting for all ABI, AIRA, CLLA , FBA, and NCBJ programs at the conference. NCBJ will issue CLE (law) Certificates; AIRA will issue CPE (accounting) Certificates.
NCBJ submits applications and educational materials to each state that require CLE credits. NCBJ cannot predict when any specific state will approve or deny a program. We assume that the combination of all programs scheduled October 8 – 11, 2017 in Las Vegas will offer at least 17 CLE credits. Due to concurrent/overlapping programs, any individual is only likely to earn about 12 credits max.
ABA administers the CLEs for their programs at the NCBJ conference. All NCBJ attendees may “sit in” the ABA programs for no credit. However, you must pay the ABA “Materials and CLE” fee to receive access to the written materials and receive CLE credit for any ABA programs. This is an optional fee that may be paid to ABA as part of the NCBJ registration process.
