NOTE: Every one of these condensed legal education programs has previously been approved for CLE credit in their original 1-hour formats in multiple jurisdictions. All programs will be qualified in Texas for CLE credit, and each attendee will receive a certificate of completion. Unfortunately, there is not sufficient time (usually a minimum of 60 days) for LawPay to have these weekly webinars specifically approved in other jurisdictions. Each attendee must use the “self-study” rules available in most jurisdictions to seek credit.
