Mandatory Continuing Legal Education for Lawyers is Recommended


A special commission on professionalism established by the Court of Appeals is recommending that each lawyer dedicate ten hours of time toward continuing legal education. The results of the Commission's work was released on February 3, 2010. One issue that is sure to raisefurther debate is the judges' proposal that judges would be exempt from having to participate inthe CLE requirement. It is interesting to note that the Professionalism's Commission's recommendation comes just days after the Maryland Institute for Continuing Lawyer Education announced it will be closing its doors forever after several budgetary problems and a lack of program attendance by would-be participants. The Professionalism Commission has posted the proposed Rules for the Maryland Commission on Mandatory Continuing Legal Education on the Judiciary's Web site.The Professionalism Commission has posted the proposed Rules for the Maryland Commission on Mandatory Continuing Legal Education on the Judiciary's Web site.
