Supreme Court order gives attorneys more time to complete continuing legal education for 2019-2020

Thursday, April 30, 2020  

By:  Leigh Anne Hiatt, APR, Public Information Officer, Administrative Office of the Courts, Phone 502-573-2350,


With the COVID-19 emergency limiting the ability of attorneys to attend live continuing legal education programming, the Supreme Court has issued an order allowing more time to complete the required credits for the 2019-2020 educational year.


A 2018 amendment to the Supreme Court Rules allows attorneys to earn all CLE credits through non-live programming. However, the Supreme Court recognizes that many attorneys prefer live programs and it may be challenging to find free or low-cost non-live programming in 2020. Accordingly, to avoid uncertainty and financial hardship, Supreme Court Administrative Order 2020-31 does the following:

  • Moves the 2019-20 CLE deadline to June 30, 2021, when 24 credits, including 4 ethics credits, must be completed and certified.
  • Moves the 2019-20 CLE reporting deadline for credits timely earned to August 10, 2021.

Here is a link to the Order in its entirety.
