screen-capture-1

As part of the annual Arizona MCLE (Minimum Continuing Legal Education) requirement Arizona attorneys must complete 15 AZ CLE credit hours each compliance period.[1] The AZ MCLE compliance deadline is June 30 and the deadline to report Arizona CLE compliance is September 15. Arizona attorneys may complete all 15 required credit hours online.

Arizona CLE Compliance & Reporting

  • Reporting Cycle: Annual
  • Compliance Deadline: June 30
  • Reporting Deadline: September 15
  • Total Hours Required: 15
  • Required Ethics: 3

Pease note that the State Bar of Arizona neither certifies CLE providers nor approves CLE courses. Essentially, Arizona attorneys must decide if a CLE course will qualify for CLE credit. Arizona Rule 45 and the accompanying CLE Regulations are based on the assumption that Arizona attorneys can evaluate CLE courses based on the guidelines set forth in the Arizona CLE Regulations and report their AZ CLE activities by affidavit. The Arizona CLE standards are very broad and many providers and sponsors often meet these standards.

What qualifies for interactive or self-study credit for an online CLE program?[2]

Where the order of presentation or the content of the course material is dependent on the attorney’s response and the attorney has an opportunity to respond to prompts initiated by the faculty or placed within the course material, it is considered to be interactive. All of the State Bar’s Online Programs are considered interactive.

One main requirement for online CLE courses in Arizona is that the CLE program must be considered “interactive.” All of Attorney Credits’ online and offline CLE courses offered in Arizona are considered “interactive” under the Arizona MCLE Rules. For online AZ CLE programs Attorney Credits utilizes randomly inserted verification prompts that appear during the online video to monitor your participation. For offline CLE courses we use three digit number codes embedded in the offline course to verify your participation and completion of the course. These are both considered accepted methods for interactivity in Arizona. For more information about Arizona CLE please click here: AZ CLE.
