Some sessions are CLE eligible and are designated as such in the Whova App. WICSEC is working with the Oregon State Bar Association to get these sessions accredited with the Bar. In order to obtain CLE credit, you must (1) select the session in the App; (2) click on the CLE link; and (3) complete the form. You must do this for each CLE session you attend. WICSEC will compile your hours and submit them to the Bar.



In order to obtain CLE credit with your state bar association, you will need to self-report your CLE hours. Please contact your state bar association with any questions.
