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 accreditation for this event in some jurisdictions with MCLE, and up to 24 of MCLE are possible.

To Get MCLE Credit:

  1. Throughout the conference: For each session you attend that you’d like credit for, 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: All IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. attendees will receive an electronic MCLE application in the post-event thank you letter. If you are seeking MCLEs from IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. you must complete the application form prior to the deadline. Once the application window has closed, IAPP will contact you with further information on reporting MCLE credits to your state of licensure. Most MCLE states allow attorneys to self-submit their own credits. IAPP will defer to the attorney to report 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. If you have additional questions, please contact your state bar or IAPP at:

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.
