FLORIDA CLE REQUIREMENTS

Whether you’re an experienced or newly admitted Florida attorney, here’s what you need to know about the FL CLE rules

Florida CLE Requirements: All attorneys admitted to practice in Florida shall complete thirty-three (33) credit hours of continuing legal education including at least five (5) credit hours of legal ethics, professionalism, bias elimination, substance abuse, or mental illness awareness programs.

Compliance Deadline: Assigned by Florida

Reporting Deadline: Last day of member’s assigned month

Compliance Cycle: Every three years

Approval of Programs: The Knowledge Group does not submit application for CLE credits in Florida. TKG webcasts are pre-approved in California thus, attendees may claim credits in Florida through reciprocity.

Program Format: The Knowledge Group webcasts fulfill the CLE requirements in Florida. There is no limit to the number of credits a Florida attorney can earn via TKG’s webcasts. View our list of LIVE Webcasts and Recorded Webcasts.

Update: Florida granted an extension to CLE reporting deadlines for February, March and May, 2020 not to August 31 2020 due to COVID-19.  All other deadlines remain unchanged per the Florida Bar.

Reporting Procedure: The Knowledge Group does not submit attendance report to Florida Bar. Attorneys may earn credits through reciprocity. Submit an application for course attendance credit to clemail@flabar.org or fax at 850/561-9421.

Florida CLE For Newly Admitted Attorneys: Newly-admitted attorneys in the state of Florida will be assigned a date to report CLER completion. The report dates will be staggered to balance the number of members who report each month.
