In 1989 the Supreme Court of Arizona mandated that every active member of the Bar must participate in 15 hours of continuing legal education every year, including three hours of professional responsibility. While the Court requires MCLE, the State Bar is responsible for ensuring compliance. For each educational year (July 1 to June 30), members must submit a signed MCLE affidavit to the State Bar no later than September 15. In addition to recording the affidavits, the State Bar also carries out random MCLE audits.
