Mandatory Continuing Legal Education
MCLEs are a requirement of many U.S. state bar associations and apply to attorneys and legal professionals licensed to practice law in jurisdictions within the U.S.
We are requesting live, in-person accreditation for this event in many jurisdictions with MCLE, and up to 23.75 MCLE credits are possible.
To Get MCLE Credit:
- Throughout the conference: For each session you attend that you’d like credit for, have your name badge scanned when you enter. New Jersey and New York licensed attorneys will also need their badges scanned , by an IAPP Staff member, when leaving each session.
- Post-conference: Action required for attorneys seeking MCLE’s from the IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. 2023 conference. All P.S.R. attendees will receive a link to our online MCLE Credit Application Form in the post-event MCLE email. If you are seeking MCLE's from P.S.R. 2023 you must complete the online Credit Application Form, prior to the deadline of 20 October 2023. Once the Credit 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-report 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 the IAPP at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: If you are licensed in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan and South Dakota you are not required to maintain MCLE credits and therefore do not need to submit an online MCLE Credit Application Form. Be sure to check your state bar MCLE regulations as some jurisdictions do not accredit sponsor programs but require MCLE's, 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.
International attorney’s attending U.S. events:
The IAPP can only offer pre-approved MCLE credits to U.S.-based lawyers. If you are an international attorney, please contact us at email@example.com and we would be happy to provide your badge scans from the conference, as well as a certificate of attendance. However, we are unable to advise on how to self-apply for MCLE’s within your country.
