On-Demand CLEs

The Minnesota Board of Continuing Legal Education allows attorneys to claim up to 30 hours of CLE credit per 45-hour reporting period through on-demand CLEs. On-demand CLEs are similar to regular CLEs in terms of content, but they may be viewed at any time rather than only during the live presentation. St. Thomas School of Law provides occasional on-demand CLE videos to view on its website. Most on-demand CLEs are open to the public, unless otherwise noted.  

As various departments at the School of Law host CLEs, the Alumni Relations Office will reach out to the department to find out if a presentation may be recorded for the purpose of seeking on-demand CLE approval. Not all CLEs presented at St. Thomas School of Law will be available for on-demand CLE. The CLEs will be available to view for no more than a 24 month time period. St. Thomas School of Law is required to maintain a list of all course participants and provide it to the CLE Board if requested. Please be sure to sign-in via the “sign-in here" hyperlink listed next to the course you intend to view. You can report your CLE credit for on-demand courses the same way you would for any other CLE course. The event code for each course is posted on the website.

***Please note that on-demand CLE credit is only available for a 24 month time period following the date it is approved for on-demand credit***
