A maximum of 8 general credits may be carried over to the next reporting period. No ethics credits may be carried over.

Coronavirus update: The Supreme Court of Louisiana previously issued an order that for mandatory continuing legal education compliance year 2020, the limitation on "self-study" credits (as defined in Rule 3(d) of Supreme Court Rule XXX) was increased to twelve and one half (12.5) hours annually. Louisiana-licensed attorneys were limited to 4 credits of self-study per reporting period.
The Louisiana Supreme Court had previously agreed to suspend the 4-hour limitation on the number of self-study credits that is found in Supreme Court Rule XXX, Rule 3(d) for members who are delinquent for the 2019 compliance only. Members who are currently delinquent for 2019 may now complete their CLE requirement through unlimited online continuing legal education credits. This allowance only applies to those members who are currently delinquent for 2019 and who become compliant by earning and reporting credits by the May 15, 2020 deadline.
