IMPORTANT UPDATE

Due to recently intensified COVID-19 concerns, the live-on-site options (Charlottesville on February 4 and Williamsburg on February 11) for this program are being canceled.

Thanks to the wonderful flexibility of the faculty, however, the program still will be offered remotely via live-interactive webcast and telephone on Friday, February 11.

We thank you for your support of Virginia CLE, and we apologize for this inconvenience. Our relationship with you is of critical importance and our goal is to professionally and purposefully help you meet your CLE needs in good times and in challenging times. 


Registration Deadlines:
Webcast: 10 minutes prior to seminar. If you register for a webcast the day of the seminar, your e-mail receipt will include a link to launch the seminar and download the materials.
Telephone: Online registration ends at 11:59 p.m. the day preceding the seminar

Cancellation Policy: Cancellation/transfer requests will be honored until 5:00 p.m. the day preceding the seminar. You will, however, be charged $65 if you cancel or transfer your registration to a different seminar after the link to the materials has been e-mailed by Virginia CLE.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance. If you enter a seminar late or leave it early, or both, you must reflect those adjustments accurately in the credits you report on your credit reporting form. A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
