Upcoming CLE in the Northwest Suburbs

CLEIn Illinois, attorneys need to complete 30 total CLE hours, including at least 6 hours of professional responsibility. For complete rules regarding CLE credits, please visit the MCLE website.

New PR Requirements

Diverse/Inclusion PR and Mental Health/Substance Abuse

Beginning with the July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019 (N through Z) and July 1, 2018 through June, 2020 (A through M), two year reporting periods, the six hours of professional responsibility CLE credits need to include 1 hour of diversity/inclusion PR and 1 hour of mental health/substance abuse PR. The provider offering the course will identify the course as offered to fulfill the diversity/inclusion or mental health/substance abuse CLE credit, in the same way that courses are currently identified for professional responsibility CLE credit.

At this point, many providers have yet to schedule many in-person seminars that cover diversity/incusion PR or mental health/substance abuse PR, but as attorneys begin to require these credits, groups will provide more courses. Keep an eye on this page and our Facebook page for more courses as they become available.
