CLE Program

The CCBA offers CLE to its members at monthly Lunchtime CLE meetings. Up to one hour of CLE credit can be earned at these meetings, and attorneys who attend qualify for CLE credits toward the minimum continuing legal education requirements set by the Illinois Supreme Court. (MCLE Rule 795(d)(3)). Topics differ each month, but cover all areas of practice within the legal profession. In addition, some topics provide Professional Responsibility CLE credit.

These monthly Lunchtime CLE meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of each month from January through October, with lunch from 11:30am-12:00pm and the CLE meeting from 12:00pm-1:00pm. The meetings are typically held at The Regent Ballroom in Savoy (1406 Regency Drive West, Savoy: www.regentballroom.com).
