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’ve sought accreditation for this event in some jurisdictions with MCLE, and 24 hours of MCLE are possible.

To Get Credit:

  1.  During online registration: Log in to your IAPP account and add your state(s) of licensure to your profile. Let us know that you intend to apply for CLE credits.
  2.  Throughout the conference: For each session you attend that you’d like credit for, have your name badge scanned when you enter. NY and NJ licensed attorneys will also need their badges scanned when leaving each session. 
  3.  Post-conference: We’ll email you an electronic MCLE application for you to complete and submit. We’ll report attendance in states where we are required to do so.

Attorneys licensed in MD and the District of Columbia aren’t required to maintain CLE credits. If that’s you, then there’s no need to submit an MCLE application. Special instructions apply for NY and PA. 

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 with any questions.
