    COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT EXEMPTIONS

    What if I practice primarily outside of Alabama?
    Many Alabama attorneys reside in other mandatory CLE states and primarily conduct their practice there. Now under MCLE Regulation 2.7, attorneys may request a waiver from Alabama’s MCLE requirements by demonstrating compliance with their home state’s Mandatory CLE requirements. The applicant must file an updated request annually. Instructions for filing this request will be available online this fall.

    What if I am 65 or older?
    Under the current MCLE rules and regulations, a few individuals are exempt from the MCLE requirements and not expected to report any hours of CLE to the MCLE commission. If you are 65 or older, or if you are 62 and already receiving SS retirement benefits, you are exempt from CLE in Alabama.
