  3. How is CLE credit reported, and what is the reporting timeline?

    Please allow 15 business days post-program completion for ICLE to report Georgia CLE credits. Reported credits will reflect the program date or webcast purchase date as applicable. Due to the nature of the reporting process, we are unable to expedite this timeline.    

    Please contact ICLE if more than 15 business days have elapsed since you completed an ICLE program and the program is not reflected in your CLE Summary.

  4. ICLE Speakers and Members of Other Jurisdictions/Entities: How do I obtain Georgia CLE credit for an ICLE presentation and how is Georgia CLE credit reported to other jurisdictions/entities?

    ICLE speakers must submit a completed Certificate of Attendance (COA) within 3 business days of the program to receive Georgia CLE credit. Once ICLE receives the completed form, the earned CLE credit will be reported to the State Bar of Georgia CLE Regulation Department. 

    ICLE only reports CLE credits to the State Bar of Georgia CLE Regulation Department, and certain other entities as published on the program brochure. 

    To self-report to another entity, submit a completed COA along with a copy of the program brochure to the entity from which you request CLE credit. Other entities reserve the right to approve or deny the request. As such, ICLE cannot guarantee that CLE credit will be granted for any entity other than the State Bar of Georgia. If you do not have the COA, you may request one from icle@gabar.org.
