ISBA Law Ed is the Continuing Legal Education provider for Illinois lawyers. ISBA provides programs on a wide variety of topics, many with a specific emphasis on Illinois law. The association also offers programs in a range of delivery formats – from podcasts to live programs.
New in 2013! As of January 2013, all eligible ISBA members can earn up to 15 MCLE credit hours, including 6 PMCLE credit hours, per bar year via our online FastCLE "Free CLE Channel" at no additional cost - enough to meet the 30 hour MCLE requirement over a 2 year period. Programs are available 24/7 on our "Free CLE Channel" on FastCLE. Using a computer with internet access, these programs can be accessed anytime, anywhere. Available programs have been chosen by a panel of ISBA members and cover a wide range of topics. Our 6-hour accredited Basic Skills program is also available online at no cost to help new attorney members meet their newly admitted attorney MCLE requirements for free. Program content will change periodically. For more information on Benefit Eligibility, Programs and for a User Guide on How To Get Started Using the "Free CLE Channel," visit our Free Online CLE homepage.
