Supreme Court of Ohio & Continuing Legal Education Commission Update
Due to the CDC recommendations against gathering in large groups in order to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Commission on Continuing Legal Education (“Commission”) has recommended and the Supreme Court of Ohio has waived the self-study caps for judges and attorneys to complete the CLE requirements for the 2019-2020 compliance period ending December 31, 2020. Accordingly, attorneys and judges with the last names beginning with M-Z may complete all CLE requirements through approved self-study courses, including live interactive webinars, for the compliance period ending December 31, 2020.
This waiver has not been granted to the attorneys and judges with the last names beginning with A-L for the 2020/2021 compliance period, which will not end until December 31, 2021. The Commission has two more remote meetings scheduled in 2020 and they will monitor and reassess the situation as it exists related to further recommendations for the 2020/2021 biennial compliance period.
