MCLE Board Policies
Accredited sponsors are entitled to include in materials which promote individual education activities, language that indicates the activity has been approved for Washington State MCLE credit in the amount of ___ hours (of which ___ hours will apply to credits on Washington practice or procedure) for purposes of reciprocal admission from another state.This policy would only be relevant for sponsors offering courses to new WSBA reciprocity admittees from Idaho and from any other state that has a reciprocity admissions rule which requires Washington attorneys to complete credits after the date of admission. This policy would not apply to sponsors offering courses to Oregon attorneys wanting reciprocity admission to Washington because those attorneys have to complete 15 credits on Washington subjects prior to being admitted.
All MCLE compliance must be certified by February 1. There is no longer a grace period until March 1. Starting in 2010 the MCLE late fee will be effective on February 2 (or on the same date that the WSBA license fee is assessed if February 2 falls on a weekend).
All sponsors need to retain CLE course materials – in paper or electronic format – for four years from the date of the course and submit them upon the request of the MCLE Board (as required by APR 11 Regulation 102(b)).
