Reminder: Mandatory CLE Program – Late Filing Fee
THIS IS A GENERAL REMINDER TO ALL PRACTICING MEMBERS AND MAY NOT APPLY TO EVERYONE.
At Convocation on December 11, 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. To file your Annual CLE Report, simply submit the required 15 hours through the portal.
Members are encouraged to review the revised rule 6.20, which can be found here: https://lsnl.ca/lawyers-students/lawyer-regulation/law-society-rules/part-vi/#Mandatory%20Continuing%20Legal%20Education
