Earn a Certificate in Ethical Billing & Reasonable Fees

June 17, 2020 | Posted in : Ethics & Professional Responsibility, NALFA News

NALFA hosts CLE and professional development programs on attorney fee and legal billing issues.  We are the nation’s leading CLE provider of programs on attorney fee and legal billing matters.  All our programs are free for our members, faculty, and fellows.  Since 2008, NALFA has hosted over 45 different programs and events covering a range of attorney fee and legal billing topics.  Hundreds of litigators and other professionals from across the U.S. and around the globe have registered and participated in these programs.  Our faculty has included 18 sitting federal judges.

NALFA is now offering a Certificate in Ethical Billing & Reasonable Fees.  This is the nation’s first and only certificate of its kind.  Litigators who register for 4 or more CLE programs (live or on-demand) will earn NALFA’s Certificate in Ethical Billing & Reasonable Fees.  This certificate is also open to UK cost lawyers, in-house counsel, and insurance claims professionals.  Upon earning this certificate recipients will qualify for NALFA fellowship.  Firm-wide certification and fellowship is available for qualifying law firms.

“We're building a worldwide network of attorney fee expertise.  Attorney fee issues have become a substantive area of law,” said Terry Jesse, Executive Director at NALFA.  “We’re excited about this new certification program.  Earning this designation will show that recipients have completed a curriculum on ethical legal billing practices and reasonable attorney fees,” Jesse said.
