Attorneys must track their own hours and report compliance to the State Bar at the end of their three-year compliance period.
If your MCLE report is audited, you must be prepared to provide:
You are required to keep these records for at least a year from the time you reported.
It is very important that you collect and keep your records of attendance in MCLE activities and self-study. Every year, the State Bar conducts an audit of the group that has filed its MCLE compliance reports.
Attorneys who do not have records showing they completed the required 25 hours may be subject to a penalty. If they still have not met the requirement by November, they will be placed on administrative inactive status and will not be eligible to practice law.
False declarations of compliance could lead to discipline.
