Colorado attorneys are required to complete at least 45 hours of CO CLE every 3 years to stay compliant with the mandatory Colorado CLE requirement. In addition, at least 7 of the required 45 credit hours must be accredited for legal ethics credit. If this past year was the end of your compliance period you should have completed all CLE hours by December 31 and reported compliance by January 31. If you did not complete the required CO CLE on time you may qualify for an extension.
Colorado CLE Extension
If you had a December 31 CLE deadline and you did not complete the 45 credit hour requirement you may file a request for an extension of time with the Colorado Board of Continuing Legal Education.
If you file for the CO CLE extension and you are granted an extension you will be given until May 31, 2017, to complete the required 45 Colorado CLE hours. Your request should be filed on the Make-Up Plan form provided by the Colorado Board of CLE. For more information about continuing legal education in Colorado, please click the following link: CO CLE.
