Accreditation and CLE Rules for Florida
Courses purchased through UnitedCLE.com are provided and fully accredited by The National Academy of Continuing Legal Education, a Florida Bar Accredited CLE Sponsor (CLE Sponsor # 0185716).
Florida attorneys can earn all 33 hours including 5 hours of professional responsibility, 1 hour or professionalism and 3 hours of technology with our Online & iOS/Android App courses. Preapproved courses offered by the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education have been directly approved by The Florida Bar and come with unique Florida Bar course codes which enables easy and quick reporting. “Self-Report” courses come with prefilled forms for easy self-reporting to the FL Bar.
Florida attorneys must complete a minimum of 33 credit hours of approved continuing legal education activity every 3 years. Five of the 33 credit hours must be in approved "professional responsibility" programs which includes ethics, professionalism, bias elimination, substance abuse, and mental illness awareness programs, and at least 1 of the 5 hours must be an approved professionalism program. Additionally, 3 of the 33 credit hours must be in approved technology programs.
Florida Registered Paralegals (FRP’s) must complete a minimum of 33 hours of CLE every three years to maintain their status. Of the 33 hours, 5 hours must be in ethics or professionalism and three 3 hours must be in technology. FRP's can satisfy all 33 mandated continuing education hours with our preapproved Online & iOS/Android App courses since they are directly approved by The Florida Bar.
Each Florida attorney and FRP is assigned a 3 year compliance period that ends on the last day of their designated month. You can find your compliance date by logging into your Florida Bar Profile.
Florida CLE rules do not allow carryover. If an attorney completes more than 33 credit hours during any reporting cycle, the excess credits cannot be carried over to the next reporting cycle.
