To obtain CME hours, physicians must request credits when registering for the event. At a CME event, physicians will be provided instructions how to obtain credits.
Generally, CME hours are listed in all printed conference materials. To find out if CME is available, or the number of credit hours for a specific conference, please review the information in the Conferences section of the website.
For general information regarding CME credits or requirements, contact the ACCME at (312) 464-2500.

Yes. ASLME is an accredited sponsor of continuing legal education programs according to the regulations of the states of AR, CA, GA, IN, IA, MS, MO, NV, NM, NC, PA, RI, SC, VA, WA, and WV. Under NYS CLE Board Approved jurisdiction process, ASLME may provide CLE credit to NY attorneys. Attorneys from other states must notify ASLME in advance to obtain CLE credit hours.
To earn CLE credits, you must notify ASLME upon registering for a conference and indicate the state for which they are seeking credit. You must also sign in at the end of each day on a sign-in sheet located at the conference registration desk.
The majority of State Bars require ASLME to submit this attendance sheet with a fee. Certain states require the individual seeking CLE credit to fill out a computer form and submit it individually to the State Bar. For individual questions, please contact the Continuing Legal Education Department of your State Bar Association.
CLE credit hours are received on a continuous basis, and vary from state to state. For information on credit hours for specific conferences, please contact the ASLME Conference Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
