Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we will be hosting live webinars in place of live seminars for the foreseeable future.  We will send an email as soon as live seminars are up and running again.  We appreciate your patience.

For our CPA customers, note that live webinar credits are equivalent to live seminar credits and will satisfy your credit requirements.  

For our attorney customers, individual state legal education requirements will vary. As of now, it appears that the PACLE Board will review attorney compliance on an individual basis if you are unable to find live seminar credits prior to your deadline. If you require more detail, please reach out to the Legal Education Board in your state.
