In addition to mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE) requirements that all attorneys are subject to, all newly admitted attorneys (regardless of licensing status) must complete 15 hours of specially approved continuing legal education courses on Vermont practice and procedure. A minimum of 9 of those 15 CLE hours must be earned by attendance at programs delivered either as Moderated Programming or Non-Moderated Programming with Interactivity as a Key Component, as those terms are defined in the Vermont Rules for Mandatory Continuing Legal Education. The 15 hours must be completed no earlier than 1 year before, and no later than 1 year after, admission to the bar. Note that courses taken to satisfy the first-year CLE requirement will count toward the MCLE requirement during your first reporting period. For more information on MCLE requirements, visit the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education page on the Vermont Judiciary’s website.
