Credits that Illinois Attorneys Can Earn From National Academy:

National Academy of Continuing Legal Education is an Accredited CLE Provider in Illinois. The MCLE Board of the Supreme Court of Illinois maintains an Accredited Provider directory on their website. Illinois attorneys can satisfy all CLE requirements through Online, CD-ROM, DVD and Audio CD formats.

The MCLE Rules require the completion of 30 hours of CLE activity in a two-year reporting period. An attorney’s reporting period depends on the first letter of the attorney’s last name as it appears on the master roll of attorneys. Illinois attorneys with last names beginning with A-M are due on June 30 of each even numbered year and attorneys with last names beginning N-Z are required to complete their requirement on each odd numbered year.

Attorneys in the July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018, two-year reporting periods must complete 30 total hours, including at least six hours of professional responsibility (PR).

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, including at least six hours of PR. However, of those six hours, Illinois attorneys must complete one hour of diversity/inclusion PR CLE and one hour of mental health/substance abuse PR CLE. Please refer to the Commission on Professionalism's FAQs for additional information.”

Attorneys must self-report completion of CLE to the MCLE Board of Supreme Court of Illinois. The Certificate of Completion issued by National Academy may be used to verify attendance. Up to 10 hours, including ethics hours may be carried over to the next reporting period.

The deadline to report is 31 days after the end of the attorney's reporting period. Attorneys can Report Online.
