On Mar. 1, 2021, The Supreme Court of Missouri suspended the license of lawyers who had failed to meet the Rule 15 MCLE compliance requirements for the 2019-2020 extended compliance period. In order to remedy a recent suspension, you must first complete all required CLE credits and record your CLE hours in your online Annual Compliance Report. Once the minimum required CLE credits have been recorded, the compliance status on your main reporting page will change to “pending late fee” and instructions for paying the $300 late fee and $100 suspension fee will appear next to your status. Upon completion of your Annual Compliance Report and full payment of the late fee and suspension fee, the MCLE Department will contact The Supreme Court of Missouri for removal of the suspension.    

ARE YOU MISSING IMPORTANT MCLE REMINDERS? The Missouri Bar MCLE Department regularly sends reminders and important updates regarding your annual MCLE compliance obligations via email. Ensure that you do not miss important information by 1) confirming that your registered email address with The Missouri Bar is accurate; and 2) setting permissions in your own email account to prevent Missouri Bar correspondence from being filtered. Though the Supreme Court of Missouri’s Rules set forth that it is your obligation to complete and report annual MCLE compliance in a timely manner, we are here to assist you and will continue to communicate friendly reminders to help you timely meet your MCLE obligations.
