Q: What devices can I access the app from?
A: The app is currently available for apple devices operating on iOS 8 or later. You can still access the Lawline.com website from any device (including mobile).
Q: Is video available on the app?

A: Click the “Catalog” button at the bottom of the screen for full access to our courses. Choose to “Refine” your selection for a specific credit state(s) and/or credit type. If you’re looking for a specific practice area, choose the “Categories” option in the top left. You can also sort your results.
Q: Why is my state not available?
A: You may not see your state available for a few different reasons. If it is not listed for that specific course, it means that course is not accredited for your particular state. If you would like Lawline to look into accrediting a particular course, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the course and state information.
If you cannot select your state while in the course catalog or claiming credit, that is indicative that state(s) does not offer CLE credit for Lawline audio courses. Feel free to visit our website for approved video CLE courses for your state.

A: Yes! If you have to leave a course at any time, the app will save your progress. Simply return to that course in the app and it will resume where you left off.
