Attorneys Newly Admitted in 2013

The compliance requirement for attorneys admitted in 2013 is 12.5 hours, including 8 hours of ethics, professionalism or law office management, which can be earned in the year of admission or the following calendar year.  The eight hour component can be earned using any combination of these credits.  All credit hours must be earned by December 31, 2014 and reported no later than January 31, 2015.
 

The MCLE Rules allow up to 4 hours per compliance period of credit hours delivered through technologically assisted means.  Ethics, professionalism, and law office management credits may be obtained in this manner.  It is highly recommended that attorneys obtain these course credits through the pre-approved courses listed on the MCLE Calendar.  Courses obtained through other venues may not qualify, regardless of the sponsoring organization. 

Attorneys admitted in 2013 who have not practiced law in Louisiana, and have not practiced Louisiana law in any other jurisdiction since their admission, may qualify for the exemption from the MCLE requirements in December of 2014, at which time the exemption application form will be made available for use.
