From the Illinois MCLE website: by Order entered October 1, 2010, the Supreme Court of Illinois has amended its MCLE Rules to increase the number of required professional responsibility credits to a minimum of six hours. This change applies to all reporting periods that end June 30, 2012 and thereafter.
This change does not apply to the N-Z attorney reporting period July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2011. For that reporting period, an attorney needs to earn at least 24 hours of MCLE credit, including at least four hours approved for professional responsibility credit.
Beginning with the July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2012 reporting period for attorneys with last names beginning A-M, and for all reporting periods thereafter, the general MCLE requirement is 30 hours, including a minimum of six hours of professional responsibility credit. See MCLE Rule 794(d)(1).
