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.

We do not apply in advance for CLE credits for our webinars. If you would like to obtain CLE credits for a webinar, you must apply to the state bar yourself. Once you sign up, you will receive a confirmation email. Click on the link provided in the confirmation email and you will be provided with the information needed to apply for the CLE credits.
Please note that some state bars will not approve webinars for CLE credits. These states include: IN, KS, OH. Click here to get specific information for each state's application process. You will need to check with your state as to whether they require you to be the registrant or an attendee of the webinars.
