Posted by: Connecticut Bar Association
As of January 1, 2017, the new rules on Connecticut’s minimum continuing legal education (CT MCLE) will be in effect. All Connecticut attorneys will need to adhere to these new rules that have been established by the judges of the Connecticut Superior Court. The Connecticut Bar Association has produced methods to help with our members’ compliance of these new requirements by:
Expanding our high quality, member driven, member delivered continuing legal education (CLE) that is accredited by the state of New York and is generally transferable to other jurisdictions and accepted by malpractice insurance carriers. Our programs are very successful and help not only participants, but also those members who are the faculty in advancing their practice, their careers, and their reputations.

Having free, online self-study programs available to allow our members to satisfy the Connecticut requirement on their own time as part of their CBA membership.
Offering our Professional Development Journal to make it easy for members to keep track of their CLE credits. This journal will be fully searchable, printable, and will be available to CBA members so they do not have to worry about keeping independent records. More information will become available about this feature as we go into the summer.
The Judicial Branch will be publishing guidance on the rule later this year. The CBA is aware that there are, and will be, many questions about Connecticut’s new MCLE rule.
