Online Course Accreditation
Legal Specialization and Education recently implemented online course accreditation. To apply, you must have both a login and password for The Florida Bar Portal and a CLE provider number.
FOR EXISTING PROVIDERS APPLYING ONLINE FOR THE FIRST TIME
If you are an existing Florida Bar CLE provider who has not yet applied for course accreditation online, email a course approval specialist to verify your contact information (include your provider number, organization name, contact person, email address, phone number, and mailing address).
An email confirmation with your login and temporary password will be sent to you after the account access has been enabled.
FOR NEW PROVIDERS
Before you can apply for course accreditation, you must have a Portal account and a CLE provider number. To establish these, email a course approval specialist your organization name, contact person, email address, phone number, and mailing address.
An email confirmation with your login and temporary password will be sent to you after the account is set up.
