Effective March 6, 2010, new lawyers or members that have not yet completed their three Basic CLE course component of the Basic Skills Course Requirement (BSCR), Rule 6-12, Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, will be able to fulfill this requirement either by attending a live Basic CLE presentation or participating in the 24/7 online CLE version of the Basic program and obtaining a certificate of completion. This online CLE option will replace the previously offered video replays. Live webcasts/virtual seminars, audio-CD and video-DVD programs will not satisfy this requirement. You can register for upcoming live seminars or participate in the 24/7 On-line CLE at your convenience and any time, 24 hours a day, by accessing The Florida Bar CLE Web site at www.floridabar.org/CLE. The in-person attendance requirement for Practicing with Professionalism has not changed.
The expanded delivery method option for satisfying the BSCR only affects those attorneys who have not yet completed the BSCR. To verify your compliance and reporting dates, please check our Web site at www.floridabar.org/cler.
