Certified Legal Manager (CLM)® Recertification Program 

Continue Your Professional Growth

You prepared and studied hard to achieve the CLM designation. Now that you’ve earned your well-deserved certification, here’s what you need to do to keep it!

Maintaining your certification requires you keep up-to-date on the skills and competencies critical to the role of a principal administrator and current on the important issues to the legal industry.

To retain your certification designation, you must continue your education with a minimum number of hours as described in the Recertification Information & Application and apply for Recertification every three (3) years based on your anniversary date.

Recertification Applications and Annual Maintenance fees can now be processed online.

An Annual Maintenance Fee is also required yearly on June 1, except in the year in which you are recertifying.
