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.

Beginning in mid-July, the online electronic affidavit process will open. 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.

The affidavit summary will automatically display all of your State Bar CLE, in addition to other events you entered on your CLE tracking page. Be sure to click "file affidavit" 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 updates your record in real time, and there is no requirement to mail the affidavit.
