Attorneys who are members of The Colorado Bar must earn at least 45 CO CLE credit hours each three-year compliance period. Of the forty-five (45) required CO CLE credit hours, a minimum of seven (7) credit hours must be completed in the area of legal ethics. In order to keep your license to practice law in Colorado in good standing you must report your Colorado CLE compliance by January 31, 2014.
If you did not complete the 45 required credit hours by December 31, 2013, you may file a request for an extension of time to complete your CO CLE requirements. Your request must be filed on the make-up plan form provided by the Colorado CLE Board by January 31, 2014. An extension of your original CLE compliance period can be granted only if you file an acceptable make-up plan.
An acceptable make-up consists of the following:
- Listing CLE programs that have already been pre-approved by the CO CLE Board that you intend to take to remedy your CO CLE deficiency.
- Completing the make-up CLE no later than May 31, 2014.
- Sending a check for $50.00 made payable to the Colorado Board of Continuing Legal Education. The fee is $100 if the make-up plan is filed after January 31.
