Texas attorneys are required to finish fifteen (15) TX CLE credit hours each annual Texas MCLE compliance period, including three (3) credit hours of legal ethics or professionalism. The Texas CLE compliance year is a one-year period. It begins on the first day of the month you were born and your compliance year ends one year later on the last day of the month that precedes the month of your birth.
TX CLE Reporting
Although MCLE providers are required to report completed CLE courses, Texas is technically a self-reporting state. Individual attorneys must ensure that their CLE credits were properly reported.
When you finish CLE courses, CLE providers are required to complete your completed TX CLE courses to the State Bar of Texas. However, since Texas is technically a self-reporting CLE state you must verify the receipt of your TX CLE compliance information because Texas attorneys are ultimately responsible for ensuring that CLE courses are properly reported.
