AHLA is an approved sponsor for continuing legal education and continuing professional education credits in most states. We apply for other types of professional education credits when appropriate.
Most programs include a workshop on legal ethics to help attendees fulfill their state requirements.
Sessions are tailored as introductory, intermediate or advanced to offer a selection, which will meet an attendee's level of expertise. For information on how many credits a specific program offers, please check the individual program web site.
Legal credits are calculated based on a sixty or fifty-minute hour depending on the state(s) in which an individual is licensed. Professional/Accounting credits are calculated based on a fifty-minute hour.

All of AHLA's in-person programs are considered updates on the topic area being addressed, with the exceptions of the Fundamentals of Health Law program, which is basic. While there are no pre-requisites or advanced preparations required to attend AHLA's in-person programs, those seeking accounting credits should be familiar with the basic concepts of law associated with the topic of the program in order to obtain the full educational benefit.
Participants wishing to obtain CPE credits for their attendance, must sign in and out of each session they attend in order to comply with the NASBA certification procedures.
Attendees are required to complete a continuing education request form in order to obtain a Certificate of Completion.

Our webinars are eligible for CLE credit in all states that accredit live distance learning events.
· For attorneys licensed in states in which live distance learning programs are approved and AHLA possesses approved provider/sponsor status, our webinars are pre-approved for CLE credit. Instructions regarding obtaining a certificate of completion are emailed to each participant along with the dial-in information and materials following registration for a given event.
· For attorneys licensed in states in which live distance learning programs are approved and AHLA does not possess approved provider/sponsor status, participants are able to apply directly to their state accrediting body for approval for and accreditation of AHLA sponsored webinars. Instructions regarding obtaining accreditation and the pertinent supporting documents (e.g. application, agenda, and certificate of completion) are emailed to each participant along with the dial-in information and materials following registration for a given event.
