FAQs for CLE eBooks (electronic materials)

1. Since there are no hard copies to pick up, how will I get my materials?
Everyone who registers for a live CLE program will receive two emails prior to the date of the seminar. The first will be approximately 10 days before the program reminding you of your registration and confirming the place and time. It also will tell you to expect another email that will arrive approximately two days before the seminar that contains a link to download the CLE materials. Free hard copies will not be available for pick up at the seminar. If you do not receive an email with the link to the materials at least 24 hours prior to the program, call OSBA Member Services at (800) 232-7124 to have the link sent to you, or just bring your electronic device to the program and the daily CLE URL will be given to you at check-in, allowing you to access and download the materials for your use.
