Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Sessions
Many of the sessions are designed to qualify for CLE credit in those states that have mandatory CLE. All Summit CLE sessions have been approved by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education, for a maximum of 13.75 hours of credit. Tennessee is the only state where NCSL has sought accreditation. Self-application materials will be made available. There is a $99 administration fee for this service.

However, legislators and legislative staff may register online without a credit card guarantee, since in most cases, NCSL can bill your state.
