You earn Points and Achievements by successful completion of Courses and Special Challenges.
Certifications and Membership Levels require minimum points and achievements.
You also receive upgrades and discounts with your points and achievements. For example, some activities have costs (Conferences, Live Courses, some Certifications and our Client Development System) and you can apply your points as discounts.
In fact, you can earn free access to several activities (such as the Advanced Professionalism Certificate) and up to 80% in total discount to Conferences, Live Courses and our Client Development System.
Points and Achievements are all within your control and reach, so challenge yourself!
We operate on an Honor System in which you pledge that your work is done honestly and is strictly your own effort. In addition, we occasionally ask quiz questions, called Honor Questions, that rely in this Honor System. For example, we may ask you a question that requires you to write a brief answer. We will then show you the correct answer and ask you yes-no if you answered correctly. If we later see that you did not answer honestly, we will return you to the beginning of the course. And if it happens more than once, we reserve the right to remove you from our site. If you make a mistake in one of these Honor Questions, notify us immediately (use the Contact Us in the menu) to avoid misunderstandings.

We allow you to register and begin your Certification studies cost-free and relatively anonymously.
This is to allow you to see immediately how the Certification process works and what the courses and exams are like.
When you are comfortable with the Institute, we will ask you to verify your data, specifically your true name, where you work, type of law practice and phone number. Your information is strictly private, stored off-site and never used except between us.
We want you to value our Certificates and Opportunities and you can only do that if you know that our members are, in fact, real lawyers!
There is no cost for continuing once you are verified.
