CLEs in Alaska
All CLE programs which take place live in Alaska must be approved for CLE credit by the Alaska Bar Association. To obtain approval, complete the Uniform Application for Accreditation of CLE and submit with attachments by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax 907- 272-2932 or mail P.O. Box 100279, Anchorage, Alaska 99510. Local Alaska non-profits, local government (municipal, borough, state, tribal, and federal) agencies, and in-house no fee programs are exempt from payment of the accreditation fee, but are required to obtain accreditation. The fee for other providers is currently $50 and is payable by check or credit card.
CLEs outside of Alaska
CLE programs which take place outside of Alaska or are webcast from outside of Alaska are not required to be accredited by the Alaska Bar Association. Alaska Bar members may claim credit for attendance at CLE programs offered in or from other jurisdictions if the program has been accredited by another MCLE jurisdiction. CLE providers may not advertise programs as accredited by Alaska unless the program has been accredited by Alaska regardless of where the program is held.
