Accreditation Info

National Academy of Continuing Legal Education has been approved for accredited sponsor status by the Washington State Board of Mandatory Continuing Legal Education. All courses offered by the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education have been directly approved by the WSBA. You can see our official approval letter here: WASponsor_Approval.pdf.

WA attorneys must complete 45 total MCLE approved credits every three years of which 6 hours must be in the area of ethics and at least 15 in the area of Law and Legal Procedure. Law and Legal Procedure (Black Letter Law) activities are defined as legal education relating to substantive law, legal procedure, process, research, writing, analysis, or related skills and technology approved for CLE credit. Attorneys may carry over a maximum of 15 credits including a maximum of 2 Ethics credits for a period of 36 months.

NEW! Effective January 1, 2016: WA eliminated the “live” requirement. All 45 hours can be earned via “AV” formats including online, CD’s and DVD’s. You can now earn all 45 credits with NACLE!

WSBA members are divided into three MCLE reporting groups based upon year of admission.
Group 1: Admitted through 1975, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015, etc...
Group 2: Admitted in 1976 through 1983, 1992, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, etc...
Group 3: Admitted in 1984 through 1990, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014, etc...
The CLE deadline for Group 1 is Dec 31, 2016, for Group 2 is Dec 31, 2017 and for Group 3 is Dec 31, 2015. The deadline for reporting is Feb 1.

Newly admitted members are exempt from reporting CLE credits for the year of their admission and the following calendar year. For example, if you were admitted in 2010, you would not report for this reporting period (2009-2011) even though you are in Group 2. You would first report at the end of the 2012–2014 reporting period. Members admitted in 2011 will first report at the end of the 2013–2015 reporting period. Members admitted in 2012 will first report at the end of the 2014–2016 reporting period. When new members report at the end of their first reporting period, they may claim all CLE credits earned on or after their date of admission to the WSBA.
