The deadline for Group 2 attorneys to report their CA MCLE compliance is February 2, 2015. Those attorneys with last names H-M are in compliance group 2. The compliance period for Group 2 attorneys runs from 2/1/12 to 1/31/15.
Starting December 1, the State Bar of California advises Group 2 attorneys to report their MCLE compliance online through My State Bar Profile. According to the State Bar of California the benefits of reporting your CA MCLE compliance electronically through My State Bar Profile include real-time reporting to the Cal Bar database with an instant confirmation emailed to the member. This also means that your card won’t get lost in the mail!
Except in the case of an MCLE audit conducted by the MCLE Department, a California attorney should never send in any MCLE related documentation such as certificates unless specifically requested by the State Bar.
One other note. California attorneys are not required to send in any MCLE certificates or documents unless directed to by the state bar. California attorneys need only report their overall MCLE compliance once they have completed the 25 required hours. However, in the event that your MCLE compliance is audited, you will be required to maintain sufficient proof of compliance with the education requirement or exemption for at least one year from the date that you report compliance.
