Does Attorney Credits verify my completion?

Yes, under the Hawaii MCLE Requirements we must monitor your course attendance and completion. For online streaming video courses you must click on randomly inserted pop ups during the video to confirm that you are viewing the course. For downloadable MCLE courses we have embedded numeric codes in the courses. You must write these number codes down and then enter them on our website after you complete the course to obtain your course certificate. Please note that the date you enter the codes and get the certificate is the date that will be printed on the certificate.

Does Attorney Credits report my MCLE hours completed to the Hawaii State Bar Association?

Yes, Attorney Credits does report your completed courses to the Hawaii State Bar Association. Our automated attendance reports run on the 1st and 15th of each month and we email Hawaii normally within two business days of the report running. Hawaii also requires that you self report your CLE compliance on your annual registration form. Hawaii attorneys should maintain records of their completed CLE courses for three reporting periods. In addition, we also maintain a record of all your completed courses and you can access your certificates of completion at anytime from our website.

How do I report the completion of my MCLE requirement at the end of my compliance period?

Each active Hawaii attorney must certify on their annual registration form that they are compliant with the Hawaii MCLE requirement. You must also maintain CLE certification records for the 3 most recent MCLE reporting periods.
