MCLE Requirements and Deadlines

Dates and Deadlines

The annual compliance period is July 1 to the following June 30. Affidavits must be filed by September 15 of each year.

Your CLE tracking dashboard is available year-round. Enter your CLE events onto your CLE tracking page for the applicable educational year. Events you take through the State Bar are automatically entered for you within 1-2 hours of completion, with the exception of self-study and teaching hours which you enter yourself. You also need to enter CLE that you acquired through other providers.

When the online electronic affidavit process opens - Begin at your CLE Tracking Dashboard, check that all events are listed, verify that you have the required hours including professional responsibility/ethics and then select the File Affidavit button.  Please note that having your events on your CLE dashboard does not constitute a filed affidavit.

Filing your affidavit.  Be sure to click "file affidavit" on your dashboard and be sure you receive an email receipt for your affidavit filing. If you do not receive a receipt, your affidavit was not filed.

Electronic filing of the affidavit updates your MCLE record in real time, and there is no requirement to mail a copy of the affidavit.
