MCLE Crunch Time is a Week Away!
MCLE Crunch Time starts NEXT TUESDAY! Over the next two months, the Law Library is hosting many amazing speakers to provide the MCLE credits you need, including hard-to-find legal ethics, competence issues, and Recognition & Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession credits.
And, this year we are making your MCLE experience even easier by holding our MCLE classes as webinars that you can register for and view from your home or office! Our online MCLE classes are only $10 each, but if you purchase our MCLE Class Package for $75, you will be able to attend as many MCLEs as you want from the date you sign up through the end of 2021! In addition to unlimited MCLE classes like these, you will also have access to online databases like Gale California Legal Forms, HeinOnline, and the National Consumer Law Database.

California attorneys who wish to maintain their eligibility to practice law have to complete 25 hours of approved MCLE credits every three years. The deadline for attorneys whose last names start with a letter from H through M to complete those 25 hours is February 1, 2021. At least 12.5 hours have to be participatory and the remaining half can be self-study.
