Starting around November we get quite a few calls from California attorneys as the CA MCLE compliance deadline approaches. We get quite a few calls from California attorneys that don’t know about the participatory and/or self-study CLE requirements when it comes to CA MCLE compliance. California attorneys must make sure to complete at least 12.5 credit hours of participatory credit each three-year compliance period.
CA MCLE – Participatory Credit
- 12.5 Hours

If a CLE provider verifies your “participation” — or attendance — in the course, then a CA CLE activity is considered participatory. Attorney Credits offers online and downloadable CA CLE courses that can be completed for self-study or participatory credit.
