Reporting Information

Live Seminar:

A Verified Certificate of Completion will be sent to you. Please retain for your records.

Attorneys are responsible for tracking and reporting their own CLE credits. A Verified Certificate of Completion will be sent to you. Please retain for your records.

Submit a copy of your Verified Certificate of Completion to the CLE Commission. After March 31, the Commission will mail you a transcript of all CLE credits posted to your record over the past reporting year.

New Attorney Information

New attorneys are not required to complete any CLE for the duration of the reporting year (not the calendar year) during which they are admitted to the State Bar of Montana. The reporting year begins on April 1 and ends on March 31 each year. Your admission date is the date on which you were sworn-in to the Bar (not the date on which you passed the bar exam.)

For example: An attorney admitted to the Bar in October 2016, does not have a requirement for the year that ends on March 31, 2017. The first full reporting year for which that attorney has a CLE requirement will begin April 1, 2017 and end March 31, 2018.
