Reporting options for CLE completed July 1- Sept. 30

CLE courses completed during the 2019-20 MCLE Reporting Year period of extension - July 1 to Sept. 30, 2020 - may now be reported in either the current (2019-20) or next (2020-21) compliance period, per the Supreme Court of Missouri’s authorization. The Court extended the 2019-20 MCLE reporting year as a result of the pandemic in its March 23 order. Rule 15 requirements for the 2019-20 compliance period must be met before excess hours may be reported in the 2020-21 compliance period. Lawyers who have already exceeded the maximum carryover of 15 credit hours for the 2019-20 compliance period may wish to report in the 2020-21 compliance period for CLE courses taken between July 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2020, in order to receive MCLE credit. Please note online access to the 2020-21 annual report will not be available until Oct. 1, 2020; therefore, it is advisable to keep records of any courses taken from July 1 to Sept. 30, 2020.

The Missouri Bar’s new MyMCLE annual reporting online application was developed to help improve the ease of reporting hours. The new platform builds on the more than 18,000 Missouri lawyers who filed their MCLE annual reports online and is part of ongoing efforts to continually improve technology and services for members. The Missouri Bar understands 2020 has brought many changes, including those to the MCLE compliance and reporting requirements and procedures. We greatly appreciate your flexibility while we work to administer the changes to MCLE and accommodate members’ needs.
