In moving forward with an initiative to go green, effective January 1, 2014, KBA CLE will start providing registrants their CLE materials in electronic format. Materials will be sent to the email address on file with the Bar. Please make sure your email is updated on your profile page to ensure receipt of materials. If you wish to still receive a hard copy, you must mark that on your registration, as hard copies will only be available at the door for walk-in registrants and those who made a request.
