3. If your search attempts are unsuccessful, then you may wish to contact the course sponsor and ask if the sponsor sought CLE credit in Minnesota.

The lawyer should include in the request for waiver sufficient information for the Board office to make a determination. Factors that the Board office considers include the following:
The initial determination is made by Board office staff. The lawyer may appeal the staff’s determination to the Director. The lawyer may appeal the Director’s determination to the Board of Continuing Legal Education by submitting a written request within 10 business days of receipt of the Director’s determination.
