California attorneys must complete 25 hours of minimum continuing legal education (CA MCLE) every three years to be able to practice law in the state of California. And meeting all your required California CLE requirements has taken on even greater importance over the last few years as the Cal Bar has greatly stepped up the amount of CA MCLE audits. One common error that California attorneys frequently commit is failing to take enough of the required specialty credit hours.
CA MCLE – Specialty Hours
- 4 Legal Ethics
- 1 Elimination of Bias
- 1 Competence Issues
California attorneys need to make sure to complete at least 1 hour of Elimination of Bias each three-year compliance period. For attorneys with last names that start with N-Z, the time is now… time to get your required CA CLE done! Don’t get fined, suspended or disbarred – start completing your CA CLE today!

 That’s because the State Bar of California has decided to increase the number of MCLE audits conducted every year.
 In addition to 4 hours of Legal Ethics and 1 hour of Competence Issues.
