Registration for all TMCEC programs typically costs between $100 and $250 and includes hotel accommodations and those meals that fall within seminar meeting times. At some seminars, CLE credit will be offered for an additional fee. Prosecutors' seminars have higher registration fees and vary depending on room request and CLE credit. Register early, as seminars have limited availability. Check out our Academic Catalog for in-depth information on specific programs and educational requirements.
