Sponsor Online MCLE FAQs
You may log in to our online system as a sponsor by following the procedures below. From your Sponsor Home Page, you can create new activities for approval, view your submitted activities and their current status, submit attendance for your approved activities that have already occurred, and search our system for other approved activities.
You may submit a Form 1 application online by following the procedures below. This is the preferred method, with a greatly expedited processing time relative to paper submissions. Currently, our processing time for online applications is approximately three weeks. Note: You must be able to pay the $50 sponsor application fee with a Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card to use this option.
Sponsors must report attorney attendance within 30 days after completion of an accredited CLE activity to avoid a $35 late reporting penalty.
If you submitted your activity's Form 1 accreditation request online, you must also submit the attendance list for that activity online. Note: You must also report if there were no attendees.
The fee for reporting attendance online is only $1.00 per attendee. Note: You must be able to pay the attendance fee with a Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card to use this option.
A sponsor may apply for accreditation of a course that is the same as an accredited course presented by that sponsor within 12 months from the original date of accreditation, by creating a duplicate Form 1 on the MCLE website (if the original Form 1 was submitted online) or submitting a paper Form 1 for each subsequent presentation. Such duplicate or Form 1s must be submitted by no later than one day before the subsequent presentation of the previously approved activity. A late fee of $35 will be charged for duplicate Form 1s that are submitted online or postmarked less than one day prior to the duplicate presentation. (APR 11 Regulation 104(a)(4))
Sponsors may also use "duplicate" to create an audiovisual (pre-recorded) activity based on an already-approved live program. As with live duplicate activities, a pre-recorded duplicate must present exactly the same material as the original live version. Written materials distributed at the live course must also be distributed with the pre-recorded course. The audiovisual activity is valid for exactly five years from its original recording date. (APR 11 Regulation 103(h)(2(C)-(E))
Note: The A/V program should be accredited to match the run time of the pre-recorded program. This may not match the accreditation of the live program, due to A/V program editing.
If you submitted the original accredited activity to the online MCLE system, follow these procedures:
