Carta’s online CLE courses are intended for practicing lawyers licensed in California (CA) and New York (NY) to receive MCLE credit. All CLE courses are free and have been approved for MCLE credit in California. New York attorneys should follow the New York Approved Jurisdiction Policy for the procedure to claim out-of-state CLE credits.

How to complete a CLE course:
Click “Watch here” above to register for a free course. Choose from four courses led by experts at Carta and partner law firms: Compliance in Equity Reporting, Structuring RSU Programs, VC Funds and Crypto Funds: Overviews and Comparisons, or Identifying and Combating Implicit Bias.

Complete the course or multiple courses at your own pace by starting and stopping the video.

How to receive your MCLE credit:
Complete this form after watching each of the MCLE-eligible virtual course(s). You must complete a separate form for each course viewed to receive a certificate of completion.

Once the form is submitted, a Carta representative will email your certificate of completion for your records.

For California MCLE credit:
California attorneys must retain their certificate of completion for at least four years from the date of course completion.

For New York MCLE credit:
New York attorneys should follow the New York Approved Jurisdiction Policy for the procedure to claim out-of-state CLE credits. California CLE is considered a “Group B” state. A NY attorney claiming credit for an out-of-state course should retain the following documentation for a period of at least four (4) years:

  • proof of attendance from the course sponsor
  • proof of accreditation by at least one of the New York Approved Jurisdictions 
  • proof that written course materials were made available
  • proof that the faculty included at least one attorney in good standing
  • for nontraditional-format courses (online, DVD, teleconference, etc.), proof of acceptable attendance verification
