    Notice of Credit Card Payment Changes

    The CLE Commission will be switching to a new credit card payment vendor in December 2019. The new system will allow international payment cards. You will see new payment screens. There will also be a transaction fee for payment made using the website.

    The Commission has paid these fees for more than twelve years. Due to increasing costs and to bring the Commission in line with best practices at other state government agencies, a new policy for the use of credit cards to pay charges on an attorney, provider, or law firm account, will be implemented.

    • Effective December 7, 2019 a 2.35% convenience fee will be assessed on all Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express credit card transactions.

    No transaction fee will be assessed on payments made by check.

    Please Note:

    • The Commission does not keep any part of the convenience fee. The fee is charged and collected by a 3rd party processor contracted by the Commission to provide credit card processing services for accounts. The full amount of the payment less the processing fee is remitted to the Commission.
    • These changes are in line with policies already in place at other government agencies in the state including the Board of Professional Responsibility and the Department of Revenue.
  • Gavel New Rule 21

     

    On April 25, 2019 the Supreme Court approved major amendments to Rule 21 governing Continuing Legal Education to clarify and simply the rule.  Click Here to read the new rule 

     

     

    December 31st is the Compliance Deadline

     

    The compliance deadline will soon be here. Now is the time to report out-of-state and online courses that are usually not reported by providers. Remember that Rule 21, Section 8.03 requires attorneys to pay for out-of-state and online hours where the course provider does not pay the fee. Notices of pending unpaid attendance are sent by e-mail when you have insufficient funds to post a course.  Included are instructions to how to keep and pay for hours as well as how to delete unwanted hours.  Make sure your e-mail address is up to date. Check the Quick Links for more detail. 

     

    Exemptions are claimed on the Annual Report Statement which are sent at the end of February.
