Participants are invited to self-submit materials for CLE credit.

All attendees will receive an evaluation survey via email on the Monday following the conference. You will need to complete the survey in order to receive a Uniform Certificate of Attendance. The certificate will include the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) as the sponsor, the title of the course, the dates of the course, the location of this course as well as a calculation of the CLE Credit Hours under both a 60-minute and 50-minute hour system. We believe that these hours accurately reflect the CLE credit you should receive. However, each state has its own rules on the accrediting process which could affect this calculation. Attorneys from any other state seeking CLE credit should contact your state bar for more information. Attendees representing other disciplines should contact their reporting agencies for more information.

Questions regarding CLE credit can be directed to Project Coordinator Courtney Jan at cjan@ndaajustice.org
