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
