California Continuing Legal Education Deadline

The deadline for California Attorneys in Compliance Group 3 to complete their Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credits for the current compliance period is January 31, 2014. Compliance Group 3 includes all licensed California attorneys whose names end with letters N through Z. Those attorneys have until February 3 to report their completion of these MCLE activities to the State Bar of California. California attorneys are required to report their MCLE compliance to the Bar via their “My State Bar” profile.

Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) refers to the approved continuing legal education required, by statute, of California attorneys. California Attorneys are required to complete a total of 25 hours of approved credit every three years.

California Attorneys can earn up to 12.5 of their required hours via self-study activities. All of these self-study activities can be earned online. Internet For Lawyers has updated all of its online California self-study MCLE exercises for the current reporting period.

California attorneys are divided into three compliance groups based on their last names. Compliance periods and reporting dates for the three groups are staggered so that each group reports compliance in a different year. Compliance periods for all California Attorney Compliance Groups are 36 months (three years) in length. Reporting deadlines for each compliance group are listed here.

To ensure that lawyers receive quality legal education, the State Bar approves MCLE providers and education activities. Internet For Lawyers is a California State Bar approved MCLE Provider.
