Question and Answer

Can attorneys earn CLE credit by taking courses by tape, online, or through another form of technology?

Generally, yes. The courses must be approved for CLE credit. Alternative verifiable learning format courses are those courses in which the participant is not physically in the room with the presenter. Courses offered under an alternative verifiable learning format must have a reliable method of verifying and recording participation.  A system that only monitors a participant’s log on and off times is insufficient. Courses taken through alternative verifiable learning formats not considered live instruction pursuant to the Board’s Regulations shall account for no more than one-half of the total credit hour requirement per compliance period (BCLE Reg. 201:8 and 301:9).
