Don’t forget that you need CPE credits to graduate! These are professionalism credits (not pro bono) for attendance at events approved by the Professionalism Committee. We have posted a set of policies and procedures on to help you navigate your way through accumulating the necessary CPE credits for graduation. Also, you can now reach the Professionalism Committee by email to email@example.com.
For information about the number of CPE credits you have as of December 2012, please check your Symplicity account under Legal Work Experience. If you feel there is a discrepancy, please contact the Registrar’s office. We are no longer posting the CPE credits to the student portal. Students will receive email confirmation that they have received the credit. Students should maintain this documentation in a safe place. Students are strongly encouraged to add their CPE credits into Simplicity, which they may do once they receive their email confirmation.
CPE events can be found on the FCSL Events Calendar (http://www.fcsl.edu/event). New events are added frequently, so check back often. Seating may be limited, so please come early to the events and don’t expect to be able to save seats for others. We do our best to reserve the largest available rooms for these events. Don’t forget to pick up your password at the end of each event from a member of the Professionalism Committee and complete the survey on Class Climate within 7 days of the event, to get credit! Lost/forgotten passwords will not be replaced.
If you would like to hold an event and you are seeking CPE credit, please first review the Professionalism policies. Then submit your request, containing the appropriate information, to the Committee. The Professionalism policies on the FCSL website, under the Academics tab, also contain all the information you need about how to obtain CPE credit for events off campus.
Shadow Program Orientation events – You can earn CPE credits for shadowing but not for this orientation; however, you MUST attend an orientation to be eligible to shadow an attorney or judge, so you might want to attend this in preparation. Then, you can earn credits when you shadow. See Professors Millard and Hornstein for more information.
