Working For Your Professional Advancement
 
The Kentucky Bar Association is committed to the maintenance and improvement of each member’s legal competency and professional values. Only by making such a commitment can the public be properly served by the legal profession. To that end, the KBA supports a lifetime of learning, reinforcement of professional values and skills development through continuing legal education.

Throughout the year, the Continuing Legal Education Commission, with the assistance of numerous committed volunteers, provides top-rated legal education programs to help you stay abreast of new developments in the law, and to allow you to meet your annual minimum educational requirement. Many of the programs, such as the annual Kentucky Law Update, are strategically located throughout the state for your convenience. In addition, a special program of professional values and introductory practice management concepts, The New Lawyers Program, is offered throughout the state for our newest members. The programs are supported by a portion of your annual dues and are offered as a member service at no additional charge.

If you miss the opportunity to attend the Kentucky Law Update in your area, or would like to attend an event with an even broader spectrum of CLE offerings, attend the nationally acclaimed KBA Annual Convention. Each year in June, the KBA produces an outstanding educational program with an assortment of topics of interest. In addition to exceptional CLE, the Convention provides many opportunities for you to get together with colleagues from across Kentucky, whether it is to participate in KBA or other law-related organization activities or annual meetings of the KBA’s many Sections.

KBA CLE offerings depend upon volunteers like you. If you are interested in serving as an instructor, or would like to author instructional materials, we want to hear from you. This is a great opportunity for you to serve your association and your colleagues, while simultaneously improving your own professional competence.

Educational requirements may also be met by attending programs offered by a wide variety of law schools, local and specialty bar associations and numerous other organizations. If you are interested in attending such programs, please verify with the sponsor of that program or with the CLE office that the program has been approved by the Continuing Legal Education Commission for CLE accreditation in Kentucky. A calendar of many accredited CLEvents is published in each issue of the Bench & Bar as well as on the CLE Menu of the website.

For our members who do not practice law in Kentucky, please make sure you are aware of the CLE requirements in the state where you practice. Many credits may be transferred from state to state and the CLE Office is happy to assist you with accomplishing this in order to meet your Kentucky CLE requirement. Supreme Court Rules also provide for an exemption from the CLE requirement for members who do not practice law in Kentucky. Please note, such exemption requires an application to be made and approved by the Continuing Legal Education Commission.
