Newly admitted members are exempt from reporting CLE credits for the year of their admission and the following calendar year. For example, if you were admitted in 2018, you would not report for the reporting period of 2016-2018 even though you are in Group 3. You would first report at the end of the 2019-2021 reporting period. Members admitted in 2019 will first report at the end of the 2020–2022 reporting period. When new members report at the end of their first reporting period, they may claim all CLE credits earned on or after their date of admission to the WSBA.
