The Florida Supreme Court recently approved a new rule requiring Florida lawyers to take technology-related CLE courses. If your Florida CLE compliance is due in the next couple years you don’t have to worry about it.
FL CLER – Technology Requirement
For example, if your last reporting cycle ended on 12/31/2016, then you would not be required to complete the technology requirement until the end of your next compliance period on 12/31/2019.
If your compliance deadline ends on or after 12/31/2019 you must complete 33 credit hours every 3 years. Five of the 33 credit hours must be in approved legal ethics, professionalism, bias elimination, substance abuse, or mental illness awareness programs. Three of the 33 credit hours must be in approved technology programs. Please click here to see more information: FL CLE.
