Continuing Legal Education (CLE)

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law is an Accredited CLE and Distance Learning provider in Pennsylvania.

Throughout the year, Pitt Law offers Continuing Legal Education Credit for attorneys who attend our live events or participate in self-study CLE through our video archive. These programs are offered directly by Pitt Law and are presented by faculty, alumni, and other practicing attorneys on a wide array of substantive and ethical legal topics.

Pitt Law generally charges a $30 fee for processing CLE credit for one-hour programs. If a program exceeds one hour in length, a higher fee may be charged. 

On December 23, 2020, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued an Order permitting attorneys the ability to complete their 2021 compliance requirements with twelve (12) credits earned through accredited distance learning programming.  Attorneys may complete all twelve (12) of their CLE credits for 2021 compliance deadlines through participation in accredited distance learning programming. Please click here for the PA CLE Board update regarding distance-learning accommodations through 2023.   

Should you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact the PA CLE Board at (717) 231-3250 or via email at pacleb@pacle.org.

The PA CLE Board has authorized attorneys to complete all 12 of the 2020 - 2021 CLE compliance periods through participation in approved online programs. Effective March 17, 2021, the CLE Board adopted a temporary policy to allow distance-learning credits taken during the 2020-2021 compliance periods to carry forward as traditional credit. Distance learning credits taken in excess the twelve (12) hours will be treated as traditional credit and carry over per Rule 108 (d) relating to carry over credits.
