Message to CAFL Private Bar Attorneys Regarding CLEs for Fiscal Year 2021

Dear Private CAFL Trial and Appellate Attorneys,

We hope that you and your families are well during this difficult time. CAFL is reinstating the Continuing Legal Education hours requirement for Fiscal Year 2021 (July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021).

Because of the continuing pandemic, you may fulfill your required CLE hours by attending webinars.  You will be paid for eight (8) hours of CLEs if you meet the attendance and reimbursement requirements.  Below is a new form we created, CAFL Webinar Affirmation form.

CAFL Webinar Affirmation Form

This form is not required if you watch a live CPCS webinar.  This form should be used only in the following circumstances:

  1. You watched a recording of a CAFL-approved webinar that was presented by CPCS;
  2. You watched a CAFL-approved live webinar sponsored by an outside entity, and the entity does not provide a certificate or other documentation of the attendees’ participation in the webinar; or
  3.  You watched a recording of a CAFL-approved webinar sponsored by an outside entity.

Please check the CAFL list of approved webinars first to see if a program is approved for credit. If you would like to request credit for a program that is not on the list, please email

Thank you for all you do,

Alice Turner
