Mandatory Continuing Legal Education

Every active member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, who is practicing law in Oklahoma must complete a minimum of 12 CLE credits (including at least  two legal ethics credits) by December 31.

The MCLE department is responsible for reviewing seminars for accreditation and for ensuring that our members who practice law in Oklahoma are in compliance with the annual educational requirement and ensuring that our members who are eligible for an MCLE exemption timely report their exemptions. Failure to report the required approved CLE credits or failure to report one of the allowed exemptions by the February 15 reporting deadline could result in non-compliance fees ranging from $100 to $700.


Report Your MCLE Credits

It is each lawyer's responsibility to make sure that their mandatory CLE credits are accurately and timely reported.

When a lawyer attends an OKMCLE approved program, the lawyer should make certain their credit is reported. Lawyers must report their own credit, if the credit is earned within 30 days of a deadline. Lawyers reporting their own credit should email a provider verified certificate of attendance to Online attendance reporting is not available to lawyers. Providers of approved programs should report attendance credit within 30 days.
