Texas attorneys that have been licensed for two years or more must complete fifteen (15) TX CLE credit hours annually, including three (3) credit hours of Legal Ethics or Professionalism. The Texas MCLE compliance year is a one-year period that begins on the first day of the month you were born. The compliance year ends one year later on the last day of the month that precedes the month of your birth.
Every Texas attorney must complete a minimum of 15 hours of accredited CLE during each MCLE compliance year.
Attorney Credits does report your all your completed TX CLE courses to the State Bar of Texas. We send completed lists to the State Bar of Texas every Monday. However, Texas is a self-reporting state. You must verify the receipt of your completed courses by the State Bar of Texas because Texas attorneys are ultimately responsible for reporting completion of their continuing education requirement to the State Bar of Texas.
Although CLE providers do report your completed CLE courses, it is ultimately your responsibility to make sure your mandatory CLE hours are accurately and timely reported with the State Bar of Texas MCLE Department.
Failure to timely report your TX CLE credit hours could result in a non-compliance penalty of $100, $200, or $300. If you still have questions about your TX MCLE reporting in Texas, please contact the State Bar of Texas. Attorney Credits also offers helpful information about continuing legal education (CLE) for attorneys licensed to practice in Texas.

 Every Texas attorney has an automatic grace period to complete and report mandatory TX CLE hours for the TX CLE compliance year. This TX CLE grace period runs until the end of the birth month.
 Please Note: We report on Monday for all courses completed the previous Monday 12:00:01 AM to Sunday 12:59:59 PM. Therefore, if your deadline is Thursday and you finish your courses on Tuesday you must self-report the courses to the State Bar of Texas yourself, since the next time we report, your deadline will have passed. We are not responsible if your courses are submitted past your reporting deadline. To submit the courses yourself please click this link:
