Don’t Miss Your September 2020 CLE Deadline

To say 2020 has upended our normal routines is an understatement, and CLE deadlines are no exception. In order to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic and the safety measures put forth by the CDC, many states have revised their MCLE requirements. See below for states that have extended their CLE deadline to September 30, 2020.


Attorneys with last names beginning A-M who have June 30, 2020 as their compliance deadline and reported “Not Yet Complied” to the Board by July 31, 2020 have until September 30, 2020 to complete their credits and report compliance to the Board at no cost.
