State Bar Slates Opportunity to Comment on MCLE
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Public meetings to discuss the rules governing Minimum Continuing Legal Education, with opportunities for public comment, have been scheduled over the next three weeks, the State Bar said Friday in a release.
The meetings, called by the Member Oversight Committee of the Board of Trustees, will take place at the State Bar’s offices this Thursday at 1149 S. Hill St. in Los Angeles and May 8 at 180 Howard St. in San Francisco. “The information gathered may ultimately be used to develop a proposal that would be submitted to the board,” the State Bar said.
The hearings will be broken up into four sessions over the two days.
The topics for the Los Angeles meeting are “Mission of MCLE” 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and “MCLE requirements” from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. In San Francisco, “MCLE providers” will be discussed from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and “Modes of MCLE delivery” from 1:30 to 4 p.m.
Public comment will be taken at each of the four sessions, and there is no advance sign-up required, a State Bar spokesperson told the MetNews. In addition, an agenda for the Los Angeles meeting can be found on the State Bar website at board.calbar.ca.gov.
