Attorneys admitted the month after passing the bar exam who have been on "active" status the entire time since admission may use the table below to look up the amount of required education. Otherwise, go to requirements to calculate your proportional requirement.
Note: If the table above indicates you must complete a proportional requirement, the total number of hours and hours of legal ethics are pro-rated. Legal ethics, bias and competence hours are part of (not in addition to) total required hours. [Rule 2.72]
In California, attorneys are responsible for keeping track of MCLE credit hours. Go to Compliance Information for recording keeping requirements.
Education activities completed prior to admittance may not be counted toward MCLE compliance. Credit may be claimed only for education activities taken on or after the first day of the month in which you are admitted (sworn in) to The State Bar of California. Additionally, there is no carry-forward of credit hours from one compliance period to the next. [Rule 2.72(D)]
