The Division Board of Directors passed a motion in December 2002, requiring 6 hours of continuing legal education per year for Active and Associate members of the Division. The changes took effect May 2004. Each year during the renewal process, Active and Associate members must report CLE earned between June 1 and May 31 for each succeeding year. In June 2017 the Division Board of Directors passed a motion requiring 1 hour of the 6 hours of required continuing legal education be legal ethics. In summary, renewing Active and Associate members must complete 6 hours of substantive continuing legal education, at least 1 hour of which must be legal ethics, by May 31 of the membership year. Members are allowed to substitute up to 2 hours of self-study or pro bono service in order to satisfy the 6 hour requirement, but members must still show proof of 1 hour of legal ethics.
