No credits may be carried over. For additional information, please see the FAQ page on the Utah State Board of Continuing Legal Education website.
NEW! The Utah State Bar announced that lawyers that comply with the 2021 reporting period will be required to change from a two-year CLE reporting period to a one-year compliance cycle effective July 1, 2021.
Per The Rules Governing the Utah State Bar – Effective May 1, 2021, the new compliance cycle will follow a fiscal year period (July 1 through June 30) during which an active status lawyer admitted to practice in Utah is required to complete a minimum of 12 hours of Accredited CLE, including 1 hour of legal ethics and 1 hour of professionalism and civility. At least 6 hours must be live CLE, which may include any combination of the following: In-person CLE, Remote Group CLE (CLE sponsored or cosponsored by the Bar, that is presented from a location in Utah, via a live streaming audiovisual presentation, to another location in Utah were the lawyer is present), or Verified E-CLE, which is CLE presented via a computer program or over the Internet where active participation by the lawyer in the CLE is verified by responding to scenarios during the CLE or answering knowledge-based questions during or after the presentation of the CLE.
Coronavirus update: The Supreme Court of Utah issued an updated order suspending all requirements for live in-person CLE attendance for attorneys reporting in 2020 and 2021.
