In 2017, up to six hours of CLE credits may be available. Some of our Intellectual Property sessions at BIO will offer attorneys an opportunity to obtain Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits in select states. Application for CLE credit will be submitted in California and Virginia, and attorneys will be notified if BIO receives credit approval. Attorneys needing CLE credit from other states are welcome to sign in, pick up the CLE forms and apply to their jurisdictions on their own. BIO will provide you with documentation when applying for CLE credit.
Continuing Legal Education (CLE) is required by several states in order for lawyers to maintain their license to practice law. For general questions regarding Mandatory or Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) requirements, visit the American Bar Association website.
The Certified Licensing Professional program was developed as an initiative of the Licensing Executives Society and recognizes professionals who have demonstrated their experience and proficiency in the licensing and commercialization of intellectual property. CLP, Inc., a separately incorporated 501(c)(6) organization, administers the Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) exam and program. The Board of Governors includes representatives from industry organizations such as LES, AUTM, and BIO.
A certificate of attendance will be provided free of charge to all convention attendees seeking to apply for certifications that are not currently provided by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization. If you wish to place a request, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the session(s) you attended at the 2016 BIO International Convention.
