Our members currently enjoy discounted registration fees for continuing legal education seminars, many of which have been approved for CLE and CLER credit through The Florida Bar.  Our members are also entitled to reduced fees for studying and taking the association's Certifying Board Program's examination for certification in various specialty areas.  See more information located on our website under Board Certification Program.
