Meeting Materials

The MCLE Board recognizes the significant effects and practice restrictions WSBA Licensed Legal Professionals are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are resources and options available to all licensed legal professionals, including those professionals in the 2018-2020 reporting period.

The state Supreme Court ordered a one-year extension of MCLE reporting for licensed legal professionals in 2018–2020 reporting period. You can read the order here.

Please be advised that on account of the Court order extending the 2018-2020 reporting period by one year (2018-2021) due to COVID-19, the following reporting period (2022-2023) is only two years instead of three. Your next reporting period will be a standard three-year reporting period (2024-2026). 

This extension order encompasses all licensed legal professionals: lawyers, LLLTs and LPOs.

Remember, you do not have to attend live or real-time seminars to earn MCLE credits. You may earn all your CLE credits by viewing or listening to recorded events such as webinars, MP3s, or DVDs.

If you can’t afford to attend webinars or purchase CLE products, ask the MCLE team for a list of accredited sponsors who offer free and low-cost CLEs. You can contact the MCLE team at

You can earn free CLE credits by providing pro bono services through a qualified legal services provider (APR 11(e)(7)), or by participating in a structured mentoring program (APR 11(e)(8)).
