There are many sources for gaining a better understanding of the rules and requirements. Each state has its own Website where the rules are available. These sites often post messages regarding pending and recent changes, announcements, FAQs, etc.
There are also several good compilations of the rules available. If you are an ACLEA member, you receive a copy of the annually updated New York State Bar Association’s “Comparison of the Features of the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Rules in Effect as of July 200X.” This is a fantastic resource as it does a good job of laying out the rules in a variety of categories for each MCLE state.
The Continuing Legal Education Regulators Association (CLEreg – formerly ORACLE) site also has many valuable resources, most available to download for your own information.
Reqwired provides CLE Rules Summaries for each state that are available for viewing. These are updated regularly to reflect changes in the rules and regulations. West LegalEdcenter, our online site, and ALI-ABA both have this information available.
Many CLE providers also provide summaries of the rules, most often for their attorney attendees. You’ll find this information on the CLE provider's Web site.
