The Nebraska Supreme Court Rule mandating continuing legal education requires all active attorneys complete 10 hours of continuing legal education per year beginning in 2010.
Oversight & Governance
The Nebraska Supreme Court created the Nebraska MCLE Commission to monitor compliance with the MCLE rule, approve vendors of CLE and ensure attorney compliance.
All active attorneys are to complete 10 hours of continuing legal education, including 2 hours of ethics or professional responsibility, per calendar year beginning in January 1, 2010.
Where to go for Education
Sources of CLE in Nebraska are Nebraska MCLE Commission accredited sponsors or approved courses by a non-accredited provider. The programs of an accredited CLE sponsor shall generally be considered approved for CLE credit so long as the sponsor's accreditation remains active. Accredited sponsors and providers of approved courses are required to report attorney attendance and CLE credits earned after each education activity.
If the attorney chooses to complete a course or education activity from an non-accredited provider and/or non-approved course for the purposes of CLE credit, the attorney will need to submit a request for CLE credit on their own behalf, which would be subject to approval by the MCLE Commission.
Administrative Tools for Reporting, Requesting Credit
An online submission system will be in place on or around October 1, 2009, for the attorney to submit a request for CLE credit and complete other administrative tasks related to MCLE.
