MCLE Credit

The State Bar evaluates whether a single activity is approved for Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit using the following factors: the activity must be directly relevant to members of the State Bar; the activity has significant and current professional or practical content; the presenters or faculty have significant professional or academic experience related to the topic being presented; the intended audience must be primarily members of the State Bar (for example, courses intended for paralegals do not qualify); and the written or electronic materials that accompany the activity must be suitable and easily understood.
