Rules Adopted by the Supreme Court

Continuing Legal Education

Rule 807
Continuing Legal Education

Reporting Requirements

(a) Annual Report. The Commission will issue an annual report in August for the preceding
compliance period for each attorney subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. If the
report is accurate, the attorney is not required to respond; the report will be filed
automatically as the attorney’s annual report. If the report is not accurate, the attorney
must notify the Commission within 30 days of the issuance of the report.

(b) Failure to Comply. If it appears an attorney has not earned the minimum number of CLE
credit hours required for a compliance period, the Commission must send notice of the
apparent noncompliance to the attorney at the attorney's last known address by certified
mail, return receipt requested. Not later than 30 days after mailing of the notice, the
attorney, to avoid suspension from the practice of law, must cure the failure to comply or
show cause for an exemption.

(c) Attendance Affidavits. All affidavits of attendance for a compliance period must be
postmarked not later than July 31 immediately following the compliance period.

(d) Noncompliance Fee. An attorney must pay a noncompliance fee of $75 if:

(1) an attendance affidavit is postmarked on or after August 1; or

(2) the attorney fails to complete the hours required under Rule 803(a) within the
compliance period.

(e) Address Change. An attorney must notify the Commission within 30 days after a change
of the attorney’s address.
