MCLE Rules Changes
The Supreme Court of Georgia has issued an order temporarily suspending Regulation 8(e) and (15) to State Bar Rule 8-106(B) which previously limited credit earned through self-study, in-house, or distance learning CLE activities. Effective immediately, attorneys may earn all 12 of their required credits with live webinars or on demand programs. Activities must be completed on or before March 31, 2021.
The Supreme Court of Georgia had previously issued an order temporarily waiving the requirement that Georgia-licensed attorneys attend 6 hours of in-person CLE. Georgia attorneys may complete all 12 hours of their requirement online though webinars or on demand programming through March 31, 2020. The Georgia Commission on Continuing Lawyers Competency has also extended the late fee deadline to April 30, 2020 for lawyers who have not completed their 2019 CLE requirement.
