Complete 25 CLE Compliance Hours with CLE-in-a-Box
If your last name starts with N-Z, you will need 25 hours of CLE credit by February 1, 2011. Are you are running low on CLE hours? Perhaps you don’t have any CLE credit at this point? The Los Angeles County Bar Association’s CLE-in-a-Box will help you cover all your compliance needs with one simple, low-cost purchase—including the required subjects and participatory credit.
CLE-in-a-Box is the most convenient and cost-effective way to meet your CLE requirements. With 25 hours of audio on CD, you can complete your CLE in the comfort of your home, office, or car. A CD of all the material related to the programs is provided with the CLE-in-a-Box and may be used for printing and reading the program files from your computer or laptop. The box also includes all the forms you need to certify your participatory credit. (Find a list of programs here.)
Earning Participatory and Self-Study Credit
Each CLE-in-a-Box includes information on applying programs to either participatory or self-study credit. All or part of the 2011 CLE-in-a-Box can be used for participatory credit. To get participatory credit, just complete the following:
1. In the presence of a witness, listen to the audio CDs and review the written materials on the materials CD for those programs.
2. Complete the sign-in sheet (included in the box) with all the required information and the signature of the witness.
3. Return the completed sign-in sheet to the Los Angeles County Bar Association no later than January 15, 2011. LACBA will mail a certificate of attendance to you within two to three weeks.
In addition to meeting these requirements for participatory credit, you must obtain and complete the MCLE Compliance Card from the State Bar of California and submit it to the State Bar by your compliance deadline. The compliance card can be completed online.
The 2011 CLE-in-a-Box also may be used for self-study credit. The State Bar allows up to 12.5 hours of the required 25 hours to be obtained by self-study. Self-study credit is reported directly to the State Bar. Visit the State Bar's Web site for other self-study or participatory credit information.
Price for LACBA members: $249+shipping ($10)
