The Florida Bar

Continuing Legal Education Requirement & Basic Skills Course Requirement

Members of the Bar are subject to a Continuing Legal Education Requirement (CLER). Each member is assigned a reporting date and required to attend 30 hours of approved CLE every three years. New lawyers are assisted in the transition from law school to law practice through the Basic Skills Course Requirement (BSCR) classes.

Amendments Rules 6-12 eliminate the requirement for in-person attendance at the three basic skills courses and allow the Bar to offer basic skills courses in-person, electronically, and online.
