Wellness in the Virginia Legal Profession

To take advantage of your two free hours of Wellness CLE:

  1. Qualify by being a Virginia laywer, judge, or law student
  2. Choose from one of the courses below and add it to your cart
  3. Create or sign into your Virginia CLE account
  4. Enter coupon code WELL2020A - OR - WELL2020B at checkout. --You will need to check out twice as both coupons cannot be used in the same transaction.--

In 2020, Virginia judges, lawyers, and law students may take up to two of the one-hour courses listed below free of charge. These courses have been developed in response to the efforts of the Supreme Court of Virginia and the Virginia Lawyers’ Wellness Initiative, and have been approved for MCLE credit by the Virginia State Bar.

You must have or create a Virginia CLE account and be signed into that account. After selecting the course, upon check out, type WELL2020A or WELL2020B into the coupon code box to zero out the cost. Each coupon can only be used once, and the codes can only be used one at a time. Therefore, you will need to check out twice.
