Delaware Application Requirements

Delaware accepts the CLEreg Uniform Application for Accreditation (Form 1) as application from program providers for continuing legal education credit. Please note that the only required attachment is an agenda or time breakdown of the course. Please do NOT send a complete set of materials. If requesting ethics credit for instruction, please indicate this separately.

Delaware also requires a $50.00 - $75.00 application fee to process single program applications from providers. Applications for Accredited Sponsor status must include an annual fee of $250.00. Please make checks payable to the "Commission on Continuing Legal Education." No action will be taken on applications submitted without the required fee.

All program providers are required to submit an attendance list within 45 days after the close of the program, and to provide each attorney with a certificate of attendance in accordance with Rule 6(A). Please do not submit copies of the attendance certificates to the Commission in lieu of an attendance sheet, and please do not direct attendees to submit attendance certificates to the Commission. Also do not submit copies of the program evaluations or written materials after the seminar unless specifically requested to do so by the Commission. Attendance lists submitted to the Commission should include the course identification number assigned by the Commission, the name and ID number of each attorney, and the number of credit hours (including Enhanced Ethics credits) earned by each attorney. To best ensure accuracy, providers are requested to maintain sign-in lists and to have a representative present throughout the program. New providers should indicate in an attachment to the attendance list the form of attendance verification used for the program.
