Fourth Reminder: Mandatory CLE Program – Late Filing Fee

THIS IS A GENERAL REMINDER TO ALL MEMBERS AND MAY NOT APPLY TO EVERYONE

Dear Law Society Members:

Reminder: Mandatory CLE Program – Late Filing Fee

At Convocation on 11 December 2018, Benchers approved amendments to Law Society Rule 6.20 – Mandatory Continuing Legal Education, which are now in effect.

Pursuant to the revised Rule 6.20, a member who fails to file their Annual CLE Report, in compliance with the Mandatory CLE Requirements, on or before the required deadline will be assessed a $500 late fee (plus applicable taxes) and shall be referred to the Vice President who may take further action as described therein.

Members are encouraged to review the revised Rule 6.20, which can be found here: http://lsnl.ca/lawyers-students/lawyer-regulation/law-society-rules/part-vi/#Mandatory%20Continuing%20Legal%20Education.

Members can find more information regarding the Mandatory CLE Requirements here: http://www.lawsociety.nf.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Mandatory-CLE-Requirements-1.pdf
