New! Lawyers can now apply for course accreditation and pay their CLE fees (late fees or course accreditation fees) through the OASIS portal.


 CLE REQUIREMENTS:  The CLE Rules require that each lawyer holding an active license complete a minimum of 45 credit hours, including at least 3 ethics credit hours and 2 elimination of bias credit hours, every 3 years.

On December 29, 2015 the Court issued an order eliminating the 6 hour cap on law office management credit. This change will be effective July 1, 2016.

The filing deadline for Category 2 attorneys reporting CLE compliance in 2016 is August 31, 2016.  The Rules do not require that you report your compliance by June 30, 2016 (the last day of the reporting period).  If you have not met your CLE requirements by June 30, 2016, you may complete them between July 1, 2016 and August 31, 2016 without requesting a formal extension from the Board.  You must enter your courses through OASIS or submit your Affidavit of CLE Compliance by August 31, 2016, or you will be subject to a $75 late filing fee.  If you have additional questions on the filing deadline, please refer to Rule 9.
