It’s everyone’s favorite time of year… CLE Crunch Time! Every attorney barred in California is required to take 25 hours of Continuing Legal Education classes every three years. This includes 12.5 hours of participatory credits, 4 hours of legal ethics credits, 1 hour on competence issues, and 1 hour on the recognition and elimination of bias in the legal profession and society. And, if you are in California State Bar Compliance Group 3, your CLE compliance period ends January 31, 2020!
Fortunately, SDLL is here to help you! Between December 1st, 2019, and January 31st, 2020, we have twenty (20!) CLE classes scheduled, and we are adding more every day!
Generally, our classes are scheduled over the lunch hour (12 pm – 1 pm), however, we do have a Saturday course that provides 2 hours of Ethics credit. Each MCLE costs $25, but we do have an Unlimited MCLE package for $75 that allows the package holder to take as many classes as they would like from the moment of purchase through December 31st, 2020. That means if you buy now, you get almost 14 months of MCLEs for a mere $75!
Here is a current list of the upcoming MCLEs we have planned, with the links to register.
