For the first level of competition (Region, District, or State Finals), the following credits are available:

- 1 general CLE hour, 1 Trial Practice hour, 1 Professionalism hour (1,1,0,1)

Attorneys who volunteer for a second level during the season (Regions + District; Regions + State Finals; District + State Finals) are eligible to claim an additional 1 general CLE hour and 1 Trial Practice hour of credit (1,1,0,0).
