CLE Programs

Every active Florida Bar member, regardless of where the person lives, must comply with the Bar's continuing legal education (CLE) requirements. The Division provides opportunities for its members to obtain the required CLE hours, particularly their ethics hours, through a variety of live seminars, videotape options, online courses, and audiotape options.

The Division annually provides its members with access to a FREE CLE program that provides up to 2 ethics hours. This is a member benefit that far exceeds the cost of Division membership. Follow this link to the CLE audio or this one to join the Division today.

BASIC SKILLS COURSE REQUIREMENT

As a Florida Bar member, you are required to take a course entitled "Practicing with Professionalism" and two basic skills courses within a prescribed time after becoming a member of the Bar. This is known as the Basic Skills Course Requirement (BSCR). As an out-of-date practitioner, you may qualify for a deferment or exemption from some or all of these requirements. For more information, click here.

LIVE CLE COURSES

Each year, the Division sponsors two or three live CLE courses. One of these courses is held annually in New York City. The other courses rotate throughout the United States and frequently coincide with the location of the Florida Bar Board of Governors’ annual Out-of-State Meeting.
