Continuing Legal Education Accreditations

24 states have awarded Continuing Legal Education (CLE) hours for our legislative and/or executive agency lobbying seminars. The seminar is, or has been, approved for continuing legal education in AR, CA, CO, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, ME, MN, MS, MO, NC, NV, PA, TN, VA, VT, WA, and WI.

In addition attorneys applying individually inform me their states have awarded full accreditation, for example ND, NY, OR, and WY.

Colorado In 2014 Colorado reduced the number of CLEs from 13 to four when the seminar is taken in-state. A Colorado attorney taking the seminar in 2014 in Nevada, which fully accredits the training, received a number of Colorado CLEs equal to the number awarded by Nevada.

Some states deny accreditation considering legislative advocacy and administrative law as activities "not unique to the practice of law." This may be because anyone can lobby and administrative proceedings are predominantly populated with pro se litigants and non-lawyer qualified representatives.

Seminar Schedule/Registration

NEW Previous registrants who retake the seminar as a "refresher course" upon registering for legislative lobbying receive the executive agency lobbying for no additional charge.

NEW North Las Vegas Police Lt. Tim Bedwell blogs on the Lobby School.

Why is the complete seminar two days? Legislatures make 10% of laws and can implement nothing; agencies make 90% to implement legislative law. Day 1 - get your law. Day 2 implement your law. Take either or both.
