Compliance DeadlineRULE CHANGE: Effective May 1, 2019, Maine's Continuing Legal Education Rule, Maine Bar Rule 5, was comprehensively amended by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Members of the bar are encouraged to review the amended rules as significant changes have been adopted. Of note, the annual registration and reporting of CLE credits have been bifurcated. The annual registration of attorneys will begin on July 1st as usual. Starting January 1, 2020, and each year thereafter, attorneys shall demonstrate CLE for the prior calendar year.
In order to transition from a fiscal year to a calendar year CLE reporting system, attorneys will report for calendar years 2018 (11 credits) and the 2019 CLE requirements (12) credits, for a total of 23 credits beginning January 1, 2020.
