Information about Past Approved WAJ CLE

The Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) applies for CLE credit with the Wisconsin Board of Bar Examiners and the Minnesota Board of Continuing Legal Education for each of its quarterly CLE seminars, and with the Paralegal Association of Wisconsin for its Spring and Winter seminars.  After each seminar, WAJ retains a roster of seminar attendees and faculty, as well as a copy of the signed ethics attendance sheet when ethics credit has been granted.  Each attendee is responsible for reporting his or her own attendance to applicable licensing authorities.  To verify your attendance at any WAJ seminar, please contact us at (608) 257-5741.

For your convenience, the Wisconsin Board of Bar Examiners and Minnesota Board of Continuing Legal Education maintain searchable databases where you can verify the date of CLE offerings, as well as the amount and type of credit granted.

Why a WAJ Seminar?

WAJ offers quality continuing legal education programs on diverse topics that aid trial lawyers in their practice. The speakers are able, experienced attorneys who provide you with essential information on topics such as basic trial practice, worker's compensation, and other areas. Those seminars are well planned and highly informative. One of WAJ's primary objectives, as stated in its Constitution and By-Laws, is to educate and train its members in the art of advocacy. WAJ's seminars serve to underscore the Association's commitment to this objective. WAJ members pay a substantially reduced fee for registration at all WAJ seminars. If you are an attorney in practice 4 years or less, the reduction in the seminar tuition at one seminar will pay for your membership dues. Sustaining Members attend the Spring, Summer, and Tort Seminars for free and pay substantially reduced fees for the Winter Seminar.
