Court Adopts CLE Self-Study Deadline Extension for Sponsors
The Ohio Supreme Court has adopted new rules that allow self-study sponsors to submit applications for accreditation of continuing legal education courses after the availability of the activity. The regulations become effective on May 1.
The Commission on Continuing Legal Education recommended the deadline extension for self-study activities, such as webinars, webcasts, and on-demand courses, up to 30 days following the date of initial availability. Prior to effective date, self-study sponsors were required to submit their accreditation applications before the availability. The amendments are in sections of Appendix I of the Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar.
By adopting the new deadline, more sponsors can request accreditation from the commission and provide more options for Ohio attorneys, while still maintaining the commission’s oversight of their programs, said Susan Christoff, director of attorney services at the Ohio Supreme Court.
