Continuing Education P.S.R. 2022

Mandatory Continuing Legal Education

Mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE) is a requirement of many U.S. state bar associations, and applies to attorneys and legal professionals licensed to practice law, in jurisdictions within the U.S.

We have sought live, in-person accreditation for this event in some many jurisdictions with MCLE, and up to 26.25 MCLE credits of MCLE are possible. Please view the number of credits we were approved up to, within your state, here.

Please note: while some Spotlight sessions at the conference will be recorded and placed on the website, these sessions are only eligible for MCLE credits if attended in-person. We did not apply for virtual accreditation; therefore, strictly virtual viewings of these sessions will not be eligible for MCLE credits.

To Get MCLE Credit:

  1. Throughout the conference: For each session you attend that you’d like credit for, please have your name badge scanned when you enter. New York and New Jersey licensed attorneys will also need their badges scanned when leaving each session.
  2. Post-conference: Action required for attorneys seeking MCLEs from IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk conference. There was an online MCLE application form open for two weeks after the conference, to opt-in to credit reporting assistance and/or receive documentation. This online MCLE application form closed on October 28, 2022. If you have missed this submission window, please reach out to to discuss credit reporting options. IAPP is only allowed to report credits to states within 30 days after a conference. If you are still within the 30-day window post conference and in an applicable state, we would be more than happy assist in reporting credits on your behalf. After Friday, November 11, 2022 the only credit reporting option will be to self-report. Most MCLE states allow attorneys to self-submit their own credits. IAPP will defer to the attorney to report and pay for their own credits in states where it is optional. IAPP is only responsible for reporting fees in states where the sponsor is required to report attendance and pay fees. If you have additional questions, please contact your state bar or IAPP at:

The Uniform Certificate of Attendance for attorneys attending this conference can be found here. This document is simply to submit to your state or use for reference when filling out the online MCLE Form. Please do not submit this form to the IAPP offices, unless specifically requested.

Please note: If you are licensed in District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, and South Dakota you are not required to maintain CLE credits and therefore do not need to submit an online MCLE application. Be sure to check your state bar MCLE regulations. Some jurisdictions do not accredit sponsor programs but require CLE, so attorneys will need to self-file.

Important: Each state has its own MCLE rules and regulations, including its own definition of MCLE. As a result, certain IAPP programs may not receive credit in some states.

Please contact us with any questions.
