CLE Information

The NCBA will seek 1 General CLE credit hours in 60-minute states, and 1.2 General CLE credit hours in 50-minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules. 

National Creditors Bar Association is a national provider of legal educational content. NCBA’s goal is to provide its members with as many opportunities as possible to earn Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. Some NCBA programs state that they are pending approval. If a program is pending approval, it means that NCBA’s education staff is awaiting confirmation of approval for CLE credit from the accrediting body of a particular state; it should be noted that individual states have different response and approval rates. NCBA expects that the course will be approved for the credit amount and type listed, but approval is not guaranteed. An attorney can still take the course at their own discretion, though.

It is not uncommon for a course which is pending approval to not be approved until after the program has taken place. It is recommended that attorneys do not view programs that are pending approval close to their CLE deadline, as NCBA cannot guarantee that a course will be approved in time.

National Creditors Bar Association will seek MCLE accreditation, with the assistance of the ABA MCLE, for this program. States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. A link for CLE requests will be provided to program attendees who have met the attendance and engagement requirements.
