CLE/CPD & Certification Credit

  • How to interpret the CLE note in each session’s description on the program schedule

    Please check back in summer 2024 to see any updates to the CLE note for your sessions of interest.

    ---

    This session is likely eligible for CLE/CPD credit.

    Based on title, description, and anticipated substance of the session, it will likely qualify for CLE/CPD credit in most jurisdictions.

    Additionally:

    To help you as you select sessions, the below types of programs are likely to qualify for credit in most jurisdictions:

    • Skills: “How to … as a lawyer”;
    • Substantive discussion of law;
    • Specialty credits: Ethics, Elimination of Bias (EOB), Substance Use Disorders, Mental Health Issues, Diversity
      • Many jurisdictions have special requirements, but we are seeing more approvals of EOB, Diversity, and Wellness credits.

    ---

    This session may be eligible for CLE/CPD credit.

    The session’s description is still forthcoming or may still be edited to encompass additional aspects that would make it more likely to be eligible for credit.

    Additionally:

    As you select your sessions, please note that the below types of programs may qualify for credit (not guaranteed), since they have caveats:

    • Law Practice Management: Legal Technology, Project Management, Office Systems, Billing
      • Must focus on specific skills lawyers need and the effect that the skills may have on the practice of law
    • Soft Skills: Communication, Leadership, Time Management, Speaking Skills
      • Must be created specifically for and focused on application to a lawyer audience

    ---

    This session is likely ineligible for CLE/CPD credit.

    Based on the session’s current title, description, and anticipated substance, it is unlikely to qualify for CLE/CPD credit.

    Additionally:

    As you select your sessions, please note that the below types of programs are unlikely to qualify for credit:

    • Marketing, Client Development, Career Development, Vendor Demos
  • How do I calculate my credits? 

    • Review the sessions you plan to attend, and review the sessions' CLE note in their descriptions. Also refer to the CLE/CPD chart (link coming summer 2024).
      • If your jurisdiction approved the session, you will earn credit once you attend the course for its scheduled duration.
      • If the jurisdiction did not approve the session, you may still attend the course; however, your jurisdiction will not award you CLE/CPD credit for attending.
    • Pending session approval, in 60-minute states, every 60 minutes of instruction equals 1.0 credit. In 50-minute states, every 60 minutes of instruction equals 1.2 credits.
  • What do the numbers on the CLE/CPD chart mean?

    The total credits listed reflect the maximum number of credits an attendee can earn at the 2024 ACC Annual Meeting, including the maximum ethics/specialty credits.

    Link to the CLE/CPD chart coming summer 2024.

  • Do I need to send my confirmed credits to my state bar?

    For some jurisdictions, ACC will report your confirmed credits to your state bar for you.

    For others, you will need to self-report your credits.

    This information will be included in the CLE/CPD chart (link coming summer 2024).

  • The meeting is done. How do I get my CLE/CPD credits (Certificate of Attendance)?

    About 1-2 weeks following the end of the meeting, we will email all attendees with information about accessing their personal CLE/CPD Service Center, where they will be able to:

    • confirm their contact details,
    • confirm their jurisdiction(s),
    • confirm the sessions they attended in-person, and then
    • download their Certificate of Attendance.

    Didn't receive the email about CLE/CPD credits?

    We ask attendees to first check their spam/junk mail folders. The email sender will be ACC Education.

    If you still can't find the email, please contact us at education@acc.com and we will re-send you that information.

    Questions about specific jurisdictions/states, or specific sessions? 

    Please email cle-cpd@acc.com.

  • CLE and Virginia-barred attorneys

    VA Credit Timing

    As you may know, the Virginia State Bar (VSB) has become increasingly strict when granting Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit for programs, especially ethics credit. Regrettably, due to the VSB’s filing review timelines, it will be impossible for ACC to guarantee in advance exactly which 2024 Annual Meeting (AM24) sessions will be granted general and ethics credit by Virginia.

    ACC Guidance

    To help guide your program selection process, prior to the 2024 Annual Meeting we will send all Virginia attorneys registered for the conference a list of sessions that we anticipate will be granted Virginia credit. We cannot guarantee their approval, but we will suggest a curriculum using our best judgment having reviewed the quality of the course materials submitted by AM24 speakers.

    Alternatively, given this uncertainty we also strongly encourage you to consider rolling over your 2024 Annual Meeting credits to your 2025 MCLE compliance year. We would not want you to inadvertently run afoul of your deadlines, since there is a chance that Virginia may not respond to our filing with the anticipated approvals until after the December 15th reporting deadline.

    VA CLE Reminders

    As you map out your AM24 schedule, we offer a couple of reminders:

    • The VSB denies credit for sessions on the topics of Law Department Management, Business/Management, Leadership, Legal Operations, and other non-traditional legal topics.
    • Ethics credit is only granted for courses that objectively and specifically address "topics embraced in recognized formulations of rules of professional conduct or codes of professional responsibility applicable to attorneys." Ethics in government, business, and other professions do not qualify for this specialty credit.

    For more general information about Virginia MCLE requirements and deadlines, please visit the VSB website: https://www.vsb.org/site/members/mcle-courses

    We realize that this is a significant inconvenience, but we assure you that we are committed to doing all we can to mitigate this challenge for Virginia attorneys who attend the ACC Annual Meeting each October. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

  • Will sessions be recorded?

    Yes, sessions will be recorded. If you are interested in accessing session recordings, you may purchase access through the Online Education library after the 2024 Annual Meeting. Recordings are not available for free viewing.

  • What is the suggested attire?

    While onsite, most attendees choose to dress business casual. We encourage you to dress comfortably, as we want to encourage an informal environment, in which your attention is centered on your education.

    Please note:

    • Meeting rooms are often a bit cool, so dress accordingly.
    • Additionally, wear comfortable shoes, as you will be walking within the convention center between meeting rooms and throughout the exhibit hall.
  • Can I make my hotel reservation before registering for the Annual Meeting?

    No. You MUST be a confirmed attendee of the 2024 Annual Meeting in order to make your reservation at one of the host hotels and receive the ACC negotiated rate.

    • Please note that you are not considered a confirmed attendee until you have received a registration confirmation email from ACC Education.
    • ONLY by using the link provided via your Registration Statement can you book within the ACC hotel block and receive the ACC negotiated rate. The hotel room blocks are available until the blocks expire on DATE TBA and as long as rooms are still available.
  • I cancelled my Annual Meeting registration with ACC. Will ACC also cancel my hotel reservation?

    No. Cancelling your Annual Meeting registration will NOT automatically cancel your hotel reservation. Please contact your hotel directly to cancel your reservation. Your hotel reservation cancellation is subject to the hotel’s cancellation policy.

  • I have a question about hotel/rates/registration deadlines/group discounts/substitutions/guests.

    Please visit our Hotel page for important reminders and info about the official ACC hotel block.

    Please visit our Rates page for answers to your registration-related questions.
