FAQ

Can I register at the door?
Yes. Walk-ins are always welcome, and there is no price penalty. However, seating and materials are not guaranteed for walk-in registrants.

What are my options for payment?
We accept personal and corporate checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

How can I register?
The quickest and easiest way to register is online. Not only will your payment be processed immediately, but you will receive a confirmation that can serve as your receipt upon arrival.

We are happy to accept fax registrations with credit card information, or mail-in registrations with your personal or corporate check. Again, you may register in person at the seminar, but we cannot guarantee space or the availability of seminar materials.

What if I register but cannot attend?
Cancellations received 48 hours or more in advance of a program will be refunded.  Otherwise, you may request that we send you materials from the seminar you missed.

CLE Credit Questions

How much CLE do I need?
Missouri attorneys need 15 hours of CLE each year. Six of those hours can be obtained by self-study. Missouri attorneys also need two hours of ethics credit, obtained each year (effective Jan. 1, 2010). The 15-Hour Review of the Law satisfies all requirements for Missouri in one day. Up to 15 hours of CLE may be carried over to the next year, but the six hours of self-study permitted may not be carried over.

Kansas attorneys need 12 hours of CLE each year, and no self-study is permitted. Two of the hours must be ethics hours. A maximum of eight hours can be earned in a single day, requiring at least one-and-a-half days of CLE. The Kansas 8 + 4 program fulfills all Kansas requirements by providing eight hours on one day and four hours at any previous or subsequent 15-hour program. Up to 10 hours of CLE may be carried over to the next year. No ethics hours may be carried over.

Illinois attorneys may find information on requirements at www.mcleboard.org.
We are applying for 12.5 hours of Illinois credit for our St. Louis Program. Because of the fees Illinois requires, we charge an additional $15 for Illinois credit.

Western District of Missouri Federal Court requirement has been rescinded.

Do Kansas hours count in Missouri and vice versa?
For purposes of the 15-Hour Review of the Law and the Kansas 8 + 4, each hour qualifies for credit in both Missouri and Kansas. Remember that Kansans cannot get more than eight hours in one day.

Do the ethics hours count toward the required 15 or 12 hours?
Yes.

How can I get all of my Missouri credit?
Any 15-hour review of the law program will fulfill all Missouri requirements for the year. Alternatively, attendance at up to 8 hours of a Kansas program may be combined with at least 7 hours of a Missouri program.

Program-Specific Questions

Do I need to take the Kansas section before the 15-hour section?
No. They are independent of each other.

Will the class fill up?
Possibly. We are bound by the space limitations of the particular location where we are holding the seminar. Generally, we plan to be able to accommodate between 500 and 600 attendees.

Can I pay by the hour?
You can register for any one hour for $45. We offer shorter registration periods at rates that may be cheaper than the hourly options offered by other providers.

For example, we offer two ethics hours for $80 at the Kansas 8 + 4. The hours qualify as ethics hours in both Kansas and Missouri. We also offer 3-hour sessions from 1:10 p.m. to 3:40 p.m. and from 3:55 p.m. to 6:25 p.m. at the 15-Hour Review for $125. The evening session of the 15-hour review from 7 p.m. to 10:20 p.m. offers four hours of credit for $95. The morning, 8 a.m. to 12:25 p.m., session of the 15-hour review offers five hours of credit at $165.

Yes, but you cannot attend the same classes on two different days and count both.
