CLE Information:

2021 CLE Accreditation: Please check the AJEI 2021 Summit CLE Information Page for information which is updated as we file for CLE approval, and when CLE approval is received. Summit Information Page: www.judges.org/ajei/2021summit

This year, AJEI will apply for accreditation in the following states: CA, FL, GA, IL, IN, LA, MN, MO, NC, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA.

The following states do not require CLE: DC, MD, MA, MI and SD. And, the following states have reciprocity with the states where CLE accreditation will be sought: AL, AZ, AK, CT, HI, ME, MT, NJ, NY, WI. Accordingly, this approach will account for the vast majority of paid registrants from recent Summits. If there are a significant number of registrations from any of the states not listed above where accreditation is required and reciprocity is not available, we anticipate submitting an application to those state(s).

AJEI will be applying for CLE accreditation only and will not be filing credits for those who attend. AJEI will provide a CLE sign-in sheet at the Summit registration table. Within a few weeks after the Summit, an email will be sent to those who signed it providing a Uniform Application for Accreditation, with supporting materials, (for those states where accreditation was not sought) and a Certificate of Attendance for everyone. ALL attendees will be responsible for filing their CLE certification and any other required documents directly with the applicable state bar or accreditation entity.
