Live CLE Events

To mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Pitt Law is currently only offering CLE programs  via live distance learning events and our video archive.  The PA CLE Board has authorized attorneys to complete all 12 of the 2020 CLE requirement through participation in approved online programs.  

Effective January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 the CLE Board adopted a temporary policy to recognize live online programming by accredited distance learning providers as live (non-capped) credit towards lawyers' CLE requirement. Should you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact the PA CLE Board at (717) 231-3250 or via email at
