CLE Credit Reporting

For all two-year reporting periods starting July 1, 2010, and going forward, attorneys subject to the MCLE Rules (who are not newly admitted) must complete 30 total hours, including at least six hours of professional responsibility.

The second year in the period is the reporting year. To avoid late fees, all CLE hours must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on June 30 of that year (completion deadline) and your compliance (or a valid exemption that needs to be reported) reported by 11:59 p.m. on July 31.

Your reporting group is based on your last name. If you were sworn in to the Illinois bar:

  • On July 1, 2006, or later, use your last name on file with the ARDC on your swearing-in date;
  • On or before June 30, 2006, use your last name on file with the ARDC on July 1, 2006.‚Äč
