  • How are CLE credits reported to the Florida Bar?
    • You must self-report your FL CLE credit hours on the Florida Bar website. In order to self-report your FL CLE, you will need to know our Florida Bar course numbers for FL CLE course that you complete. The Florida Bar course numbers are printed on your Certificates of Completion.
  • How often and by when do I need to report CLE compliance?
    • Florida attorneys are required to report FL CLE hours earned every three years. Each Florida attorney is assigned a three year reporting cycle. You can find your reporting date on the mailing label of The Florida Bar News.
  • What is the new technology requirement?
    • Effective January 1, 2017, each Florida attorney must complete 3 credit hours in approved technology programs each compliance period. Compliance with the new rule will begin in the member’s next reporting cycle following the January 1, 2017 effective date. For example, if your last reporting cycle ended on December 31, 2016, then you would not have to complete the technology requirement until the end of your next compliance period on December 31, 2019.
