Continuing Legal Education
You can get all of your CLE credits from CTLA's Civil Justice Foundation.
For over 60 years we've offered quality programming, and now we've made it easier and more convenient for you to earn CLE credits! Attend live seminars, watch webinars on-demand, or order streaming audio and video.
Each attorney admitted in Connecticut is required to earn a minimum of 12 credit hours (2 hours of ethics) of continuing legal education every year as part of their license requirement.
Our live seminars and their recordings are currently approved in the states of Connecticut and New York and meet most states' recommended requirements.

COVID-19 Rules Changes
On March 24, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rules Committee of the Superior Court ("Rules Committee") adopted an interim order suspending the Minimum Continuing Legal Education ("MCLE") requirement set forth in Connecticut Practice Book Section 2-27A.
At its annual meeting on June 26, 2020, the Judges of the Superior Court ("Judges") ordered that the suspension of the MCLE requirement shall extend for the entire calendar year 2020. The Judges additionally ordered that all CLE credits taken in 2020 shall apply in full towards an attorney's or authorized house counsel's 2021 requirement, even if the amount exceeds the two hour carryover cap provided for in Section 2-27A(c)(5).
