Effective November 1, 2011
OVERVIEW: The MCLE Board has always considered live interaction with the course presenter(s) and other attorneys a valuable educational component. The new regulations recognize the advantages of modern technology in continuing legal education while balancing the benefits of professional interaction. The board has determined that a minimum hourly requirement for courses which provide simultaneous, live interactivity will be required. The new MCLE regulations require Active attorneys to attend a minimum of four (4.0) credit hours of live interactive programming. “Live” programs are defined as courses where there is simultaneous, live interactivity with the course presenter(s) during the program and will include traditional live on-site programs, live presentations delivered via telephone or webcast or other courses which may be developed that include simultaneous, live interaction with the presenter or qualified discussion facilitator during the program.
