MCLE Credit Requirements by State

Click for CPE Credit Information


Alabama - Attorneys must complete 12 credits, including 1 credit in ethics or professionalism, during each yearly reporting period. Per Alabama State Bar MCLE regulations, the maximum number of online credits that can be earned toward your required 12 credits is 6 credits per year (MCLE Rule 3.1).  PLI's MP3s, MP4s, and on-demand web segments are categorized as on-demand web-based programs by the ASB and qualify for online credit. Live seminars, live webcasts, and live groupcasts, which are synchronous and occur in real-time, are considered live programs under these rules and are not subject to the 6 credit limit.
 

Alaska – Attorneys in Alaska should complete 12 credit hours of approved CLE, including 3 credit hours of mandatory ethics each year.
 

Arizona - Attorneys must complete 15 credits, including 3 professional responsibility/ethics credits, during each yearly reporting period.  A maximum of 5 hours, including specialty credits, may be earned through self-study each year. 
 

Arkansas - Attorneys must complete 12 hours, including 1 credit in ethics, during each yearly reporting period.  Attorneys may receive a maximum of 6 hours credit for in-house programs conducted during any reporting period.
 

California - Attorneys must complete 25 credits, including 4 credits of Legal Ethics, 1 credit of Competence Issues, and 1 credit of Recognition and Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession and Society, by January 31 every three years. There are three compliance groups, assigned by last name and staggered by year. No credits may be carried over to the next reporting period. Learn more about newly-admitted requirements. All PLI products are considered “participatory” and are not subject to any credit limit.

The amount of education an attorney owes is based on the number of months in the compliance period that the attorney is subject to. If an attorney is subject to the MCLE requirement for an entire compliance period, s/he owes the regular MCLE requirement. If an attorney is subject to the MCLE requirement for a portion of the compliance period, the requirement is prorated. To calculate MCLE requirements, go to www.calbar.ca.gov .  The proportional requirement rules specify that if a member is subject to the MCLE requirement for four months or less, s/he does not need to comply with the MCLE education requirement for that compliance period.  Thus, if an attorney was admitted in December and his or her Compliance Group's deadline is less than 2 months away, it is unnecessary to comply with the MCLE requirement for that compliance period (if there are less than four months left in it).
