This course is pending approval in Georgia, Kansas, Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. NDAA will not be applying for CLE credit in the state of Texas. Many states will allow attorneys to receive CLE credit for virtual courses that have been approved in one of these states through reciprocity or self-submission. Please speak with your CLE accrediting body to ensure that they will allow you to self-submit the course for approval if your state is not listed above.

GoToWebinar will log each attendee’s “time in session” for the webinar. All attendees who sign into the webinar and complete the session will be sent a copy of the PowerPoint presentation, speaker biography, and a Uniform CLE Certificate from NDAA staff following the event.

Attendees must self-submit this course for approval in their home state. All attorneys are responsible for any fees associated with CLE filing. Attorneys seeking CLE credit should contact their state bar associations for more information.  General questions or additional information regarding CLE credit can be directed to Project Coordinator Metria Hernandez at mhernandez@ndaajustice.org.

NDAA’s mission to serve and support prosecutors and their staff. In consideration of this commitment, NDAA requires that all those in attendance of our programs currently work in or work closely with prosecution. This training is designed for a very diverse audience, attorney and non-attorney administrative personnel in a government attorney’s office. The government attorney’s office may be military, civilian, tribal government, federal or state, and local. We welcome chief prosecutors tasked with both administrative and litigation responsibilities, attorney-administrators have transitioned from litigation to purely administrative duties, and non-attorney administrators with hands-on working relationships with attorney litigators. If you are not sure about your eligibility, please contact Project Coordinator Metria Hernandez at mhernandez@ndaajustice.org.
