|Commission on Continuing Legal Education: Accredited Activities
In order to receive credit on the Transcript, a Delaware attorney
should sign in at each CLE program, local and national, with
the attorney's Delaware Supreme Court identification number (please
refer to the ID card mailed annually by the Supreme Court each spring
after registration). As providers are occasionally approved for alternative
methods of attendance tracking other than sign-in sheets, attorneys
should be careful to follow all a provider's instructions for obtaining
credit. Providers are not obligated to report attorney attendance
at CLE programs if the attorney does not follow the required procedures,
providing a valid
Supreme Court identification number.
For a list of approved programs, please log in at www.desclms.org and check the program catalog.
Programs which are not included on the list
for the appropriate time period have not been approved by the Commission. This may
mean either that the program has been denied credit or that the provider
has not submitted the course to the Commission for review. Attorneys
who attend an activity which is not accredited should apply for credit
using Form 4, which can be downloaded from the Forms page or submitted through the online process (preferred). If the course is of a questionable nature, such as dealing with
profitability, marketing, or issues of personal interest or topics
geared toward the general public, refer to our list of policy
statements or contact
the Commission to determine whether credit has already been denied
to the program.
Attorneys may also receive credit, upon application to the Commission,
for unpaid activities such as teaching CLE programs or law school
courses, publication of a book or article consisting of scholarly
writing, writing and grading bar examination questions, pro bono work,
or participating on the work of professional committees. For more
information, please refer to CLE Rule 9 and download the applicable form from the Forms page or submit online (preferred). If you have questions, please contact the Commission.
