Continuing Legal Education (CLE):
This CLE program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the New York CLE Board for a maximum of 3.0 credit hour, of which 3.0 can be applied toward the Professional Practice requirement. This program is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys.

Neither the Connecticut Judicial Branch nor the Commission on Minimum Continuing Legal Education approves or accredits CLE providers or activities. It is the opinion of Shipman & Goodwin that this activity qualifies for three hours toward your annual CLE requirement in Connecticut, including zero-hour(s) of ethics/professionalism, but is subject to change based on actual instruction/attendance time.
