Continuing legal education (CLE)
CLE consists of required ongoing education for attorneys after they have been admitted to the Bar in order to retain legal licensure. Depending on the location, CLE is also known as mandatory or minimum continuing legal education (MCLE). There is no national CLE accreditation. However, in all jurisdictions, attorneys may seek accreditation by providing passing grades from recognized CLE, MCLE, or continuing professional development courses, submitting an application, and possibly paying a fee.
