Please note that the date you enter the codes and get the certificate is the date that will be printed on the certificate.

If you have all of your required Oklahoma MCLE completed by December 31, you do not have to file an Annual Report of Compliance. If you have NOT completed all of your required MCLE by December 31, then you must file an Annual Report of Compliance. In mid-January the Annual Report of Compliance is mailed to all Oklahoma attorneys whose records indicate that they have not completed the required MCLE. When you receive the Annual Report, you must make any necessary additions or corrections and return the Annual Report to the Oklahoma Bar Association by February 15.
