Approved CLE credits from Pennsylvania and Virginia may be claimed by attorneys in California, New York, and Illinois as reciprocal credits; no additional application is required. Simply submit your CLE certificate of attendance for the 2009 Policy Summit along with your yearly reporting of credits to receive credit for attendance.
If you practice in a state that does not have a standing reciprocal credits policy with Virginia or Pennsylvania, you can easily apply for the 2009 Policy Summit to be approved for CLE credit in your state. Attorneys are usually asked to submit a simple form (available on your state’s CLE authority’s website) along with the conference agenda or program and the certificate of attendance issued by the other CLE-granting jurisdictions. FMC will be happy to provide these documents to you at the conference and can answer any questions that your state bar or CLE authority may have about your application for credit.
