Publications Reprint Requests

How do I request permission to reprint a portion of an MCLE publication?
It is recommended that you initiate the reprint permission process at least one month in advance of the intended date for distribution of the reprinted material. Send an e-mail to the Director of Publications, Maryanne G. Jensen, Esq., at Note the title of the article you wish to reprint (including the title of the publication, chapter number, and author’s name), the number of pages to be reprinted, the number of reprints you wish to make, and the purpose for the reprint (e.g., for distribution at a seminar to take place on ___, sponsored by ___.) Once MCLE determines whether or not to grant the permission, and the fee therefore, you will be e-mailed a “Request to MCLE for Reprint Permission” form noting the permission, the fee, and any particular restrictions on the grant of permission. Sign the request form and return it with the reprint fee to the attention of the Director of Publications, MCLE, Inc., Ten Winter Place, Boston, MA 02108. It is your responsibility to contact the author directly, to advise that you are reprinting his or her material with MCLE’s permission (once such permission has been granted by MCLE). This is required as a professional courtesy to the author of the original work. Suggested language for this notification to the author is as follows:
“I am honored to notify you that MCLE has granted me permission to reprint your original work which was published in [MCLE publication title] [copyright year]. Your work will appear in [your publication title and copyright year]. The reprinted material will include full attribution to you as its author.”
