Electronic Materials Frequently Asked Questions
1. Since there are no hard copies to pick up, how will I get my materials?
You will receive an email prior to the seminar containing a link to your materials. If you prefer to take a printed copy to your seminar, please print it before you arrive at the seminar. No hard copies will be available for pick up at the seminar.

Materials will be sent to the email address on file with the Bar. Please make sure your email is updated with the Bar to ensure receipt of materials.
3. What if I want a hard copy of the seminar materials?
A limited number of hard copies will be available for an extra charge.
4. I’m already paying to attend the seminar, so why do I need to pay for printed materials?
In moving forward with the SBA's green initative, as well as a cost-saving measure, the CLE department is providing registrants their seminar materials in an electronic format. The advantage of “going green” serves multiple benefits:
- Allows the Bar to keep registration fees at the 2008 price
- No more lugging around big binders of materials
- Easy access to materials

• Adobe Reader Free
• Good Reader for iPad
• ezPDF Reader
10. How long will seminar materials be available for me to download?

11. Do I need to print a hard copy of seminar materials to be in compliance with MCLE regulations?
No, you do not need to print a hard copy of the seminar materials. In order to comply with MCLE regulations, you must have access to the materials for two years after the seminar. Materials may be stored electronically, i.e. on your computer’s hard drive, a flash drive, disc, etc. You must download the seminar materials within 90 days of the seminar; after 90 days, materials will no longer be available.

When you register at the door, a link for the materials will be sent to the email address on file with the Bar.
13. What if I do not receive the email containing the link to download the seminar materials?
