Attorney Credits provides continuing legal education (CLE) for Washington attorneys. Attorneys in Washington must complete 45 CLE units each three year compliance cycle in order to meet the Washington minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) requirement. As part of the 45 unit Washington MCLE requirement, attorneys must also complete a minimum of 6 credit hours of Legal Ethics or Professional Responsibility.
A lawyer may earn a maximum of one-half of the required credit hours for any reporting period through self-study, as defined in Regulation 103(h) of Appendix APR 11.
Washington attorneys do have the option to complete at least a portion of their MCLE requirement through online WA CLE courses. Lawyers in Washington may satisfy up to 22.5 credits of their required 45 CLE requirements through online CLE courses. Online CLE courses are considered self-study according to the Washington MCLE Rules. Of course, attorneys in Washington may fulfill their entire 45 unit MCLE requirement through live CLE courses.
A “Live” activity takes place in “real time” – it is not pre-recorded. For a Live activity, participants attend either in person or via teleconference, videoconference or webcast – at the time the course is actually being presented and can pose questions to the instructor(s) during the course; all participants must hear the question and answer live.
Attorney Credits makes completing Washington CLE easy. Attorney Credits features both online and offline CLE courses for Washington attorneys. We also offer 22.5 CLE unit compliance packages on CD or DVD and we have fully loaded MP3 Players and USB compliance packages that come stocked with 22.5 WA CLE units.
