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.
The filing deadline for Category 1 attorneys reporting CLE compliance in 2015 is August 31, 2015. The Rules do not require that you report your compliance by June 30, 2015 (the last day of the reporting period). If you have not met your CLE requirements by June 30, 2015, you may complete them between July 1, 2015 and August 31, 2015 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, 2015, 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.
On Demand: On December 6, 2013, the Court issued an Order permitting lawyers to claim up to 15 credit hours per reporting period for on-demand courses as defined by the Board’s Rules, subject to the provisions outlined in Rule 6E. This change will become effective July 1, 2014 for courses approved for CLE credit by the Board and viewed on or after July 1, 2014. Applications for credit approval for on-demand courses are available under CLE Forms.
Lawyer Registration: On July 24, 2014 the Court issued an Order authorizing the Board of Continuing Legal Education to have oversight of the Lawyer Registration functions.
