Record Keeping

Attorneys need to maintain their own certificates of attendance and other proof of MCLE compliance. At the end of each two-year reporting period, attorneys must report to the MCLE Board whether they have complied with the MCLE rules, have not complied with those rules, or are exempt from those rules. Please see MCLE Rule 791 for the exemptions.

Individual attorneys seeking to establish MCLE compliance should not mail, email or fax certificates of attendance or other documents to the MCLE Board unless the board sends notification that they are being audited. See MCLE Rule 796 for more information on attorney recordkeeping.

DePaul University College of Law adjuncts should submit a request for CLE certificates for courses taught by email to The request should include the name of the course, the semester and year.
