Reminder: Ethics Requirement
The annual requirement for all compliance groups is twelve (12) total credit hours. Of this total, a minimum of two (2) hours must be in ethics.

Attorneys in compliance group 3 are required to complete their CLE requirement by December 31, 2015. Accredited Providers are granted 30 days from the date of a course to report credits to PA CLE. The PA CLE Board accounts for this reporting period before determining non-compliance with the 2015 CLE requirement.

Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board Announces Increases in Ethics Requirement and Distance Learning Options

February 4, 2014 - The Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board has announced changes in rules and regulations that will permit more credits to be earned via distance learning, and will increase the annual ethics requirement.

By Supreme Court Order, Pa.R.C.L.E. Rule 108 (e) has been changed to increase the amount of credits lawyers may earn via alternate delivery methods from four (4) to six (6) credits annually. The board also adopted a regulation change to increase the ethics component of the annual CLE requirement from one (1) to two (2) credit hours. The total number of CLE credits required annually will remain 12 hours.

The amendments to the rules and regulations will take effect with CLE compliance periods that have requirement deadlines in 2015.

The ethics credit increase marks the first significant modification to the CLE requirement since 1996 when the total requirement expanded from nine credits to twelve. The new provisions for distance learning will provide lawyers the option of completing up to half of their annual requirement through distance learning and computer-based education.
