Ethics CLE Credit: If you are seeking Ethics & Professionalism CLE credit, please search for CLE programs that offer Dual CLE credit. The CLE Commission has modified the rule so that all Ethics & Professionalism hours are considered “dual” credit so can be applied to both Ethics and General CLE credit hours.
NOTE: Online registration for onsite CLE programs turns off 24 hours before each event. After that, call the KBA Office at (865) 522-6522 to check availability for walk-in registration. There is a $ 5.00 charge for registrations on the day of the program.
Cancellation/Refund Policy: Reservations cancelled less than 48 hours before the program are subject to the penalty of the entire amount. However, you may transfer your registration to another individual.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY: Please verify when you register for an online CLE course that you have not previously taken that same online program. Some of our online CLE courses have been approved for CLE credit for longer than one calendar year using the same course ID number. The CLE Commission will not approve CLE credit for the same course even if it is taken in a different calendar year.
