An attorney must earn at least 12.0 total MCLE credits (including 1.0 ethics) annually.

Attorneys should check their transcripts periodically for compliance and should always check it in early December to assure that all credits have been reported to the MCLE Department and are up-to-date. Attorneys who are in compliance should go online and print a copy of their transcript to keep for their records around that same time. Non-compliant attorneys will receive a written notice of an MCLE deficiency in late January or early February. If they find at that time that they are lacking credits, this will give them several days prior to the years’ end to complete their MCLE requirement.
