WHERE DO I REPORT MY ILLINOIS MCLE?

Attorney Compliance Reporting Should Be Entered Online

www.mcleboard.org

Attorneys report compliance with (or a valid exemption from) MCLE requirements every other year. Reporting periods last two years from July 1 to June 30 – in even numbered years for those with A-M last names and in odd numbered years for those with N-Z last names.

 

Your two-year reporting period deadlines:

To see what two-year reporting period you are currently in and deadlines for that reporting period, login using the Attorney Login box on the upper right of this page. After logging in, go to the "My MCLE" page on our website and that information will display below your name.

Completing credits:

Beginning with the July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019, and July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2020, two-year reporting periods, attorneys must continue to complete 30 total hours of credit, including at least six hours of professional responsibility (“PR”) credit. However, of those six hours of PR credit, Illinois attorneys must complete one hour of diversity/inclusion PR credit and one hour of mental health/substance abuse PR credit. 

Reporting:

The second year in the period is the reporting year. To avoid late fees, all CLE hours must be completed by 11:59 PM CDT on June 30 of that year (completion deadline) and your compliance (or a valid exemption that needs to be reported) reported by 11:59 PM CDT on July 31. Online reporting opens on May 1 of your reporting year.

 

To report online, please login using the Attorney Login box on the upper right of www.mcleboard.org, then go to "My MCLE” and follow the steps to submit your report.

 

Last Name Determination:

If sworn in to the Illinois bar:

  • on July 1, 2006 or later, use your last name on file with the ARDC on your swearing-in date;

  • on or before June 30, 2006, use your last name on file with the ARDC on July 1, 2006.

Name Change:

Once you are admitted, your reporting group does not change even if your name does.
