Continuing legal education (CLE) requirements for paralegals and other legal professionals vary by state and jurisdiction. Some states require paralegals to complete a certain number of hours of CLE each year, while others do not have any CLE requirements for paralegals.
In states where there are CLE requirements for paralegals, the number of hours and the types of courses that qualify may be different from those required for attorneys. The exact requirements will depend on the specific state or jurisdiction.
It's also worth noting that while most states do not require CLE for paralegals and other legal professionals, some employers or professional organizations may have their own continuing education requirements. It's best to check the specific requirements of the state or organization where the paralegal is licensed or employed.
Even if CLE is not required for your state, taking continuing education courses is still highly recommended in order to stay current and knowledgeable in your profession, and to help you sharpen your skills for your day-to-day job. Check out our full catalog of courses here.
