The PA CLE Board strongly believes that all lawyers shall be entitled to attend and participate in high quality CLE programming. Effective in September of 2000, the Rules and Regulations were amended to include the following condition of accreditation for Accredited Providers. Section 11: Accreditation of Accredited Continuing Legal Education Providers (h) The provider shall have available a financial hardship policy for attorneys who wish to attend its courses, but for whom the cost of such courses would be a financial hardship. Upon request by the Board, the provider must produce the detailed financial hardship policy. The policy may be in the form of scholarships, waivers of course fees, reduced fees, or discounts. Attorneys seeking information on qualification conditions and application procedures should contact the provider directly. A list of Accredited Providers is maintained on this website.
