Maine CLE Compliance & Reporting Requirements

  • Reporting Cycle: Annual
  • Required Credits: 11 credit hours

In addition to completing the ME CLE requirement, Maine attorneys must also report their CLE compliance annually. Registration statements and the Annual CLE Report must be filed and fees must be paid on or before August 31 by every attorney admitted to practice law in Maine. Online and downloadable CLE courses qualify for Maine CLE credit as long as they have been accredited by the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar.

When filing of the annual registration statement, Maine attorneys are required to sign and submit the Annual Report to the Maine CLE Board listing:

  • Course titles
  • Dates
  • Locations
  • Sponsors
  • The number of credit hours of all CLE courses
  • Other CLE activities taken for credit during the preceding calendar year

Online, on-demand CLE courses are considered self-study courses in Maine. No more than one half of the credit hours required (5.5 credit hours) in any annual ME CLE reporting period may be earned through self-study courses. For more information about CLE in Maine please click here: ME CLE.
