If there is a course you see in our catalog that you'd like to watch but is not approved for Florida CLE credit, you have the option to self-apply for approval with the state. Florida attorneys have two options: Filling out and submitting a formal application for approval, or taking advantage of reciprocity.
Applying for Approval:
1. Before you start a program, you will be prompted to select which states you'd like to receive credit in. If Florida is not on the list of pre-approved states, click the 'Eligible To Self-Apply' option and select Florida.
2. After you complete the course, you'll be issued a certificate of completion which can then be used as part of your application for Florida CLE credit. This will serve as evidence that you already watched the course and will include much of the information required for self-applying, such as the title, presenter(s), length of the program, etc. The certificate will be sent to you via email, but it can also be found in your account by clicking 'Me' in the top right corner of your screen and then clicking 'Certificates.'
3. Once you complete your course, fill out the form below to officially apply for FL credit:
4. Send your form and any required attachments directly to Florida. Their contact information is below, but is also listed on the application itself:
The Florida Bar Legal Specialization & Education
651 E. Jefferson Street
Tallahassee, FL 32399-2300
Florida attorneys can also earn FL CLE credit by completing courses approved in other jurisdictions, otherwise known as "reciprocity". To take advantage of this, Florida attorneys would simply need to submit their certificate of completion by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to (850) 561-9421.
