How to Register

If Your Plans Change

If you're unable to participate in a program on the date for which you registered, you will receive an email about how to access the program on demand via webcast and/or downloadable mp3 file, including the written materials in electronic form, in full satisfaction of the tuition paid. If you prefer a refund, let us know by the end of the business day prior to the program and we'll refund your tuition after deducting a $40 processing fee. Limited enrollment programs may only be refunded, minus a $100 processing fee, if we are able to fill you seat.

Privacy Policy

MCLE is committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals with whom MCLE communicates. In the course of business, MCLE collects customer information, which is used to process and send order(s), to bill credit cards and to contact the customer when necessary. MCLE uses a secure server to protect the sensitive information of all individuals and law firms that access www.mcle.org. The secure server software encrypts all information before it is sent to MCLE. Information provided to MCLE regarding individuals and law firms when creating an account, logging on to www.mcle.org, registering for a program, or purchasing online products enables MCLE to process and fulfill orders, to provide users with notification regarding order status, and to notify users from time to time of new content on the site. From time to time, if MCLE changes its privacy policy, such changes are posted to www.mcle.org, in order that users of the site may always be aware of what information MCLE collects and how it is used. If a person wishes to have their name removed from MCLE's electronic database, they are invited to email MCLE's Customer Service Department at customerservice@mcle.org. MCLE's staff takes every precaution necessary to ensure that users' accounts are secure. On occasion, MCLE may partner with other professional organizations to provide special services to our customers, in which case, customer information is limited to the purposes stated herein. It is MCLE's policy not to swap or sell databases with third parties.

Need Special Assistance?

If you are a person with a disability or special needs, please let us know in advance so that we can make your experience as convenient and comfortable as possible. Contact Customer Service at 800-966-6253 or customerservice@mcle.org to make arrangements. For your convenience, MCLE offers closed captioning and transcripts of all recorded webcast programs, available to you online two weeks after the original program date.

Mandatory CLE Credits

States have varying credit requirements; individual attorneys are responsible for checking with their particular state CLE accreditation authority about whether and how much credit will be granted. MCLE does regularly submit to Rhode Island and Maine. Although MCLE does not pursue state-based credit (outside of Rhode Island and Maine), our programs are regularly approved in many jurisdictions; it is the responsibility of the individual attorney interested in CLE credit to submit the information and certifications required under the respective state rule to the appropriate state authorities in the jurisdictions in which they seek credit. MCLE live webcast programs do, however, feature periodic attendance prompts.

New Lawyer Savings

For the first five years of practice, MCLE offers new lawyers a 50% scholarship on a wide variety of MCLE programs and publications, including the MCLE OnlinePass. If you were admitted to the Massachusetts bar within the last five years, take advantage of the new lawyer pricing listed throughout this website.

Attorney Scholarships

No lawyer should be precluded from participating in CLE due to financial barriers. Request a partial tuition scholarship in confidence by emailing scholarships@mcle.org at least two weeks in advance of the program.
