Meeting Connecticut’s MCLE Requirements from the Comfort of Your Company’s Own Office
As you know, effective January 1, 2017, every active Connecticut licensed attorney and Authorized House Counsel will be required to complete at least 12 credit hours of continuing legal education each year. Of the 12 hours, at least two of the hours must be devoted to the topic of “ethics/professionalism.” The new mandatory CLE provisions are set forth in Connecticut Practice Book Sec. 2-27A (“Minimum Continuing Legal Education”). The text of the rule can be found at the following link: http://jud.ct.gov/mcle/MCLE_rule.pdf
