5 Things to Know About the MCLE Rule

  1. You Must Earn 12 Credits
    • All attorneys must complete 12 hours of continuing legal education (CLE).
    • Of those 12 credits, two must be ethics.
    • If you earn more than the required 12, you may carry over two credits into the following year.
  2. How to Earn Credits
    • In-person CLE programs: The most common way of earning credits. View the CBA Education calendar for a full list of seminars.
    • On-demand: Access a wide variety of video and audio CLE products through our Education Portal from the comfort of your home or office.
    • Alternative ways to earn: Teaching a CLE program, writing and publishing articles in publications like the Connecticut Lawyer, or by teaching courses by an ABA accredited law school.
  1. Tracking Your Credits
  2. How to Report your MCLE Credits
    • There is no requirement to send in written proof of your MCLE compliance – the program is a self-reporting system. For the full MCLE rule, visit the Connecticut Judicial Branch website.
    • The CBA does not report any credits to the judicial branch and is not affiliated with Connecticut Judicial Branch in any way.
    • Each attorney must keep track of the courses and hours accumulated, and must maintain these records for seven years. Check your CLE Credit Tracker to view the courses you have taken!
  3. MCLE is Easy with the CBA!
    • After earning your 12 credits, all you need to do is indicate that you have complied with the rule on your annual attorney registration form filed with the judicial branch. MCLE is easy with the CBA!
