On-Demand+CLE Webinars

On-Demand+CLE webinars are eligible for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit and are approved in every state with mandatory CLE requirements for attorneys unless otherwise specified. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State Chart for details regarding specific state guidelines.

On-Demand Webinars

Offerings designated as “On-Demand" differ from those designated as “On-Demand+CLE" in that they are CLE-ineligible. However, CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney's state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body and subject to its rules and regulations. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State for details regarding specific state guidelines.

Other, Non-CLE Credits

AHLA On-Demand+CLE webinars are only approved for CLE credits unless otherwise stated. To obtain other credit types (Continuing Professional Education, Compliance Certification Board, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.) participants may apply directly their desired licensing body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said licensing body and subject to its rules and regulations.
