Connecticut's New MCLE Rule

On January 1, 2017, Connecticut attorneys will need to comply with the new rules on minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) as established by the judges of the Connecticut Superior Court.

The Connecticut Bar Association is prepared to help members comply with these new requirements by:


  • Expanding our high quality, member driven, member delivered continuing legal education (CLE) that is accredited by the state of New York and is generally transferable to other jurisdictions and accepted by malpractice insurance carriers. Our programs are very successful and help not only participants, but also those members who are the faculty in advancing their practice, their careers, and their reputations.

  • Having free, online self-study programs available to allow our members to satisfy the Connecticut requirement on their own time as part of their CBA membership.

  • Offering our Professional Development Journal to make it easy for members to keep track of their CLE credits.  This journal will be fully searchable, printable, and will be available to CBA members so they do not have to worry about keeping independent records. More information will become available about this feature as we go into the summer.


If you are a CBA member and have questions regarding MCLE, please e-mail

The Connecticut Judicial Branch has published guidance to the new rule on their Minimum Continuing Legal Education webpage.
