What is MCLE?
Mandatory Continuing Legal Education or Minimum Continuing Legal Education is professional education for attorneys that takes place after their initial admission to the bar. Most states and territories within the United States require attorneys to complete certain requirements in order to maintain their licenses to practice law. Outside the United States this may be known as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and attorneys licensed there must also complete certain requirements. Some jurisdictions recommend, but do not require, that attorneys complete CLE or CPD.
