Connecticut's New Minimum Continuing Legal Education Rule

 Latest News
  The CBA attended the first meeting of the Connecticut Judicial Branch’s Commission on Minimum Continuing Legal Education on September 26, 2016, where we learned that the commission has agreed to allow 2.0 hours of CLE credit earned in 2016 to rollover and count toward the 12.0 hours required for 2017.  


On January 1, 2017, Connecticut attorneys will need to comply with the new rules on minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) as established by the judges of the Connecticut Superior Court. The Connecticut Bar Association is prepared to help members comply with 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. Click here to access our fall calendar.


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.
