How to get MCLE credits at BALI

BALI offers regular continuing legal education for our program participants. When we feel our trainings are of interest to the broader legal community, we open our trainings to non-BALI attorneys for a small fee. Many of our trainings are also available online for view by request for self-study MCLE credit.

Unless specified, all trainings take place at BALI's hub inside the mezzanine floor of the Alameda County Law Library, 125 12th Street, Suite 100-BALI, Oakland, CA 94607.

If you are interested in one of our trainings listed below and are NOT a BALI community attorney, please either follow the link provided with the description of the training to an online registration portal or email Cynthia Chandler at cynthia@acbanet.org.
