Mandatory Continuing Legal Education

Mandatory Continuing Legal Education ensures that WSBA members continue their legal education throughout their active practice of law. This is of primary importance to the public and to the WSBA.

APR 11 requires that active members (including military lawyers, foreign house counsel, and administrative law judges) complete a minimum of 45 hours of approved continuing legal education activities in each 3-year reporting period. At least 22.5 credits must be live and 6 must be ethics. Failure to comply with the MCLE requirements will result in suspension.
