The State Bar of Texas requires attorneys to complete 15 credits, including 3 credits of legal ethics/professional responsibility, every year. Compliance periods begin on the first day of the attorney's birth month and end on the last day of the month preceding the attorney's birth month in the following year. All credits must be reported by the end of the attorney's birth month. A maximum of 15 credits may be carried over to the next compliance period. For additional information, please see the FAQ page on the State Bar of Texas website.
