CLE Credit

The Wisconsin Board of Bar Examiners approved 12.5 CLE hours (credits) for the 2016 Municipal Attorneys Institute. This includes 1.5 Ethics and Professional Responsibility (EPR) hours. With the exception of the Wednesday afternoon ethics presentation, which is worth 1.5 CLE hours and satisfies 1.5 EPR requirements, attorneys may claim 1 CLE credit for each presentation attended. Individual attorneys are responsible for reporting their actual hours of attendance.   

The Minnesota State Board of Continuing Legal Education awarded the Institute 9 standard credits and 1.25 ethics credits.
