What is webstreaming?
If you prefer to attend the conference sessions from the comfort of your home institution, the Legal Issues in Higher Education Conference can be viewed via a low cost webstream option, the webstream will be a live video (with audio) stream of the conference. Price is per computer and if you choose to project the conference sessions at your home institution, you may have many people attend.
Can I receive CLE credit for webstreaming the conference?
There is NO CLE credit available for the webstreaming option.
How does webstreaming work?
Each purchased instance of the webconference provides access to one session or room at one time. In order to watch multiple sessions simultaneously, a person would have to purchase multiple instances. At most we will have 3 sessions running at any given time. After the conference all the content will be available to the webconference attendees. If multiple people from an institution want to view multiple tracks simultaneous they will need to purchase multiple instances. If multiple people want to watch the same session they only need to purchase one instance.The rooms we use will each have a camera set up and an online facilitator.
When can I expect to receive instructions on how to webstream the conference?
You will be sent instructions on how to webstream the conference 2-4 business days prior to the start of the conference.
What does my registration fee include?
Online reference materials and online access to conference videos. Breakfast and lunch the first two days, and breakfast on the final day. Your choice of Concurrent Workshops.

Continuing Legal Credits (CLEs)
The 2019 Legal Issues Conference has been approved by the Vermont Board of Bar Overseers for 13.5 hours general credit and 0 hours ethics credits of continuing legal education (CLE). This is based on a 60 minute hour. Attorneys should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Please note that UVM applies for CLE credit in the state of Vermont ONLY for the live conference (not webstreaming). UVM does not pay the application fee for CLE applications in states other than Vermont. UVM makes no guarantee that your state will issue CLE credits for the conference. For information regarding CLE’s in other states, please check with your state bar.
Under New York’s Approved Jurisdiction policy, so long as certain requirements are satisfied, New York attorneys may count towards their New York CLE requirement credit earned through participation in out-of-state courses accredited by a New York Approved Jurisdiction. For more information about New York’s approved jurisdiction list and policies please visit this website: http://www.nycourts.gov/attorneys/cle/approvedjurisdictions.shtml
Under New Hampshire’s Approved Jurisdiction policy, NHMCLE does not approve or accredit CLE activities for the NH Minimum CLE requirement. The provider believes this course meets the requirements of NH Supreme Court Rule 53 and may qualify for up to 870 minutes toward the annual NHMCLE requirement. New Hampshire attendees must self-determine whether a program is eligible for credit, and self-report their attendance.
Under Massachusetts Approved Jurisdiction policy, Massachusetts is one of the few states where continuing legal education (CLE) for attorneys is not mandatory, except for the Practicing with Professionalism course for new attorneys admitted to the bar after September 2013 (see below for additional information). However, many of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s CLE programs are accredited or approved in most nearby states, including: Vermont.
