There will be an opportunity to seek CLE credit for watching this live Webex webinar session or watching designated individual webinar sessions. To seek CLE credit, you must do the following:

  • Individually access the webinar using the meeting link that was sent to you after you registered. You may use a computer, smart phone, or mobile device. If using your phone, you may use the link on your calendar, email, or Webex App to access the meeting (view and hear the meeting). Please note that calling into the webinar using the Webex phone number listed at the bottom of your calendar meeting invitation is for audio only and will not qualify for CLE credit since it will not allow you to view the meeting. Again, you must access this webinar using your meeting link on a government or personal device (e.g., computer, phone) so you can hear and view the meeting.

  • Watch the webinar in its entirety.

  • Write down the code words that will be provided during the webinar at regular intervals.

  • There is no partial CLE credit for any individual webinar sessions. You must have ALL code words for an individual webinar session in order to seek CLE credit for that individual webinar session.

  • Log in to the webinar 15-20 minutes before the start time, as the first code word will be given at the beginning of the webinar. Once a code word is given, OLE is not authorized to repeat the code word again or provide a reconciled list of code words at the end of the webinar.

  • After the webinar concludes, OLE will send out a CLE link the following business day. Using the CLE link, you will need to list the code words in the order broadcast.

  • You may access the presentation material and agenda on OLE’s SharePoint site approximately 90 minutes before the webinar begins.

  • You may access the presentation material and the agenda immediately before joining the Webex webinar at the login page under “Event Material.” An event password may be required (Webex will provide the event password in your calendar invitation that contains the meeting link).

PLEASE NOTE: If you are seeking CLE credit for any CLE-eligible training that OLE provides, please ensure that you have consulted your own bar rules to make certain that you are adhering to all bar rules/regulations, including such restrictions as not seeking CLE credit twice in the same compliance period for the same training.
