Ohio CLE Changes Adopted

The Ohio Supreme Court announced yesterday that it has adopted continuing legal education (CLE) changes that will double the number of online credit hours attorneys could earn, allow attorneys to earn a portion of their CLE hour requirement by engaging in approved pro bono activities, and eliminate the requirement to file final reporting transcripts, effective January 1, 2014.

The changes to Gov. Bar R. X resulted from a year-long study by the Commission on Continuing Legal Education and incorporated feedback from a survey of the state’s judges and active attorneys about what changes they would like made to CLE requirements, according to Attorney Services Director Susan Christoff.
