Our Legal Education Commitment

The State Bar of Georgia is committed to the professional development of our members by providing quality legal education courses through ICLE and a dedicated group of staff to help maintain your CLE status reports and standings through CCLC.

Extended Waiver of 6-hour In-person Requirement

The Supreme Court of Georgia has extended the waiver of the 6-hour in-person CLE requirement through March 31, 2021.

In part:

“Considering that the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in the cancellation of many in-person continuing legal education programs and that Georgia lawyers, therefore, have limited access to programs at which they may fulfill the requirement of personal attendance at such programs, and in consultation with the president of the State Bar, the Court temporarily suspends Regulations 8 (e) and (15) to State Bar Rule 8-106 (B) to the extent that those Regulations limit lawyers to six hours of credit through self-study, in-house, or distance-learning continuing legal education activities.

Effective immediately, and continuing through March 31, 2021, lawyers may earn all or any portion of the required twelve hours through self study, in-house, or distance-learning continuing legal education activities under Regulations 8 (e) and (15), so long as those activities otherwise satisfy the requirements of those Regulations.”
