With the craziness that always accompanies year-end: attorneys seeking last-minute credits, running through hundreds of pieces of paper to generate all of the compliance paperwork, family holiday obligations...I am finally settling back into the rhythm of the work day once again.
One interesting fact that came to light in our year-end crunch - Colorado has two diferrent rounding rules! We have always used the "general" rounding rule in Colorado: for every 50 minutes of class an attorneys earns one credit, rounded to the nearest whole credit. But, interestingly, if the topic involves ethics the minutes are divided by 50 and rounded to the nearest 1/10 of a credit.
This will make for some interesting changes in our processes here in the office as we don't currently have a way to incorporate two different rounding rules based on content into our system, so we'll have to handle manually for now.
