I have the link in my registration confirmation, but it does not work.  What should I do?

The entire virtual meeting and networking breakouts will be held on Zoom. Make sure you have the latest version of the software or app downloaded for the best user experience and are signing in as you. Download Center - Zoom

Next, make sure you are logged in to your Zoom account.

Continuing Legal Education Credits (CLE)

Is this meeting eligible for CLE credits?

Yes, for certain jurisdictions.

​The CPR Institute has been certified by the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board as an Accredited Provider of continuing legal education in the State of New York. CPR is a non-profit organization. Under financial hardship guidelines, at its discretion, CPR may waive the fee for attorneys who demonstrate that they are not currently employed (not retirees). CPR may also provide a special discounted price to attorneys, full-time judges and administrative law judges practicing in the non-profit and public sectors full time.

Please check back here or review instructions in meeting materials provided before and during the meeting.

For Attendees from other jurisdictions, CPR can provide a general certificate of attendance upon request. For this process, please follow the standard procedure and indicate that you request a general certificate of attendance.

How do I claim CLE credit?

To claim CLE credit, you will need to show proof of viewing the CLE-eligible sessions. Such proof will be codes given out during the session. You must listen for these codes as they will not be posted in the chat. You will then need to fill out the CLE request form and the session evaluation form for each session attended in addition to the overall meeting evaluation and submit both forms to Kai Sass-Hauschildt at ksasshauschildt@cpradr.org. Please send the forms no later than March 14, 2022.

Where can I obtain CLE request and evaluation forms?

Please contact ksasshauschildt@cpradr.org with any questions regarding CLE credit in connection with this program.
