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 three options: you can take advantage of Florida's reciprocity rule, request that Lawline apply for approval, or self-apply for the course yourself. See below for instructions and information on how to do each option:
Florida attorneys can earn FL CLE credit by completing courses approved in other jurisdictions, otherwise known as "reciprocity". If you've already completed a course for another jurisdiction and would like to earn Florida credit as well, you can simply submit your certificate of completion by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to (850) 561-9421.
How to Request that Lawline Apply:
- Contact our Customer Support team via email at email@example.com or by phone at (877) 518- 0660 and let us know the name of the course(s) and the state in which you're seeking approval.
- If you are requesting that Lawline applies for a course that you have not yet taken, we ask that you wait for the application to be approved before watching the course. We will notify you once it is approved, typically within 30 business days but the turnaround time is dependent on the state.
- If you have already taken the course for credit in another state, but would now like to receive Florida credit as well, you can still request that Lawline apply. If the application is approved, you will then be issued a new certificate of completion for Florida.
Please note that we cannot guarantee that Florida will approve the CLE credits as requested. Factors that can impact whether or not the course you've selected can be approved include, but are not limited to:
- The length of the course
- The age of the content
- When the course was completed (if completed before submitting application request)
- The topic
If you do not want to go through the application process with Lawline, you have the option to self-apply directly with Florida. In order to do so, follow the instructions listed in the article here.
