Approved Jurisdiction Policy - Written course materials


If the course was accredited by a Group “A” jurisdiction, the attorney need not retain written materials, as these jurisdictions require written materials for all of their courses. For courses with accreditation only from Group “B” jurisdictions, the attorney must retain a complete set of written materials or, for voluminous written materials, a table of contents and the first ten pages of the materials, or some other proof that thorough, high-quality written materials were distributed for the course.*

* For courses accredited by California that are more than 60 minutes in length, the attorney need not retain written materials, as California’s CLE regulations require written materials for these courses. Likewise, for courses at least 60 minutes in length accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of the Law Society of England and Wales, the attorney need not retain written materials, as written materials are required for these courses.
