Don’t Scream! California MCLE Deadline Is Near

The Scream is Edward Munch’s most famous work and probably one of the most recognizable paintings. This painting represents the universal anxiety of modern man. If you are a California attorney whose last name begins with N-Z you may also be experiencing this type of anxiety:

You now have 18 days to fulfill your California MCLE requirement.  That’s 25 total CLE units — including 4 units of Legal Ethics, 1 Unit Substance Abuse, and 1 Unit of Elimination of Bias.

If you sign up today and take two classes each day you will fulfill your CLE by the February 1st deadline.  We have a number of great courses to choose from — from Literature in the Law to the Do’s and Don’ts of e-Discovery … and everything in between.

You don’t have to fret about heading down to the Bar for that ‘Last Chance MCLE‘ seminar.  With CLE Your Way, we got you covered … and you don’t have to get out of your pajamas!  You can listen to CDs in the car, watch DVDs at home, or enjoy our streaming online video courses on your office computer.  We’ve got you covered!

And make sure to report your MCLE compliance electronically this year. The State Bar of California is requiring that you report your MCLE compliance online through My State Bar Profile.  My State Bar Profile is an online feature for California attorneys to pay fees, update personal information, report MCLE compliance, and manage other ministerial tasks.

From the Cal Bar Website:

Please note that, effective Feb. 1, 2010, California Rule of Court 9.7 made it a requirement to use My State Bar Profile as the means to report changes to your contact information, as well as to provide and maintain a private e-mail address for State Bar communications.

If you are a first-time user, call the Member Services Center at 1-888-800-3400 for your initial Access Code. Returning users just need to logon with their password and go to MCLE Compliance.

The benefits of reporting compliance electronically include real-time reporting to into the Cal Bar database with instant confirmation e-mailed to the member. This means no more no more lost compliance cards in the mail! You can visit this Cal Bar webpage for Report Compliance FAQ.

Good luck with all your CLE!
