Currently, forty-five states* have mandatory (or minimum) continuing legal education (MCLE/CLE) requirements for attorneys licensed to practice law in those states. Failure to complete these requirements by the end of the reporting period can result in fees, license suspension, and other penalties.
Many of Sterling's live seminars are approved for M/CLE in multiple states; attendees are eligible to earn credit for any or all states advertised as approved.
In some areas, we are able to provide credit for additional states upon request, if notified before the seminar. In rare cases, Sterling is also able to obtain additional credit after the program has been completed.
Many states also offer self-study credit, which can be earned by completing the audio and written version of the seminars available in the Bookstore. Regulations on the number of hours and availablity of self-study credit vary by state. If you would like to find out if you can earn M/CLE through one of our self-study packages, please contact us contact us for more information.
*Currently, Connecticut, Michigan, Maryland, Massachusetts, South Dakota and Washington, D.C. do not have mandatory CLE requirements.
