The MCLE Board of the Illinois Supreme Court regulates and administers Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) requirements for Illinois-licensed attorneys. The MCLE Board maintains a helpful website with regularly updated information about the continuing education requirements for Illinois attorneys at www.mcleboard.org.
Since January 1, 2006, IICLE® has been an Accredited CLE Provider, accredited by the Illinois MCLE Board pursuant to Rule 795(b). Therefore, all programs offered by IICLE® are presumptively approved for general substantive CLE credit.
Yes. Unless otherwise specified, all IICLE® online on-demand, and Audio download programs (1) are accredited for substantive Illinois MCLE credit hours by the Illinois MCLE Board and (2) for programs with professional responsibility credits indicated, approved for those hours by the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism. Programs for which professional responsibility accreditation has not yet been approved will have those credits listed as "pending approval."
You can view all of the hours you have earned with IICLE® by logging into your account on www.iicle.com. To access your history of participation in IICLE® continuing legal education programs from anywhere on the IICLE® website click on the silhouette next to the shopping cart icon at the top right of the screen and log in to your account. Once you are redirected to your My Content page click on the “CLE Tracker” tab on the right side of the page. Hours obtained through IICLE® or through any IICLE®Share Network Provider will be automatically listed here. You may also enter programs you have taken with other providers in order to keep track of all of your hours in one convenient place.
As an Accredited CLE Provider, IICLE® programs are presumptively accredited by the Illinois MCLE Board to offer general substantive Illinois MCLE hours. However, IICLE® must apply separately to the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism (ILSCCP) for accreditation of all professional responsibility hours. If program information indicates that certain content is "pending approval" for Illinois MCLE Professional Responsibility hours, that IICLE has applied to, but has not yet received approval from, the ILSCCP for those hours. All programs with professional responsibility hours listed without the "pending approval" label have been approved by the ILSCCP. For more information about professional responsibility requirements for Illinois attorneys, please visit the ILSCCP website at www.ilsccp.org.
Yes. IICLE reports the CLE activity of individual attorneys to the Illinois MCLE Board on a monthly basis. Activity is reported no later than 15th of the month FOLLOWING the month in which the CLE activity is conducted. For example, if you complete an IICLE program and are issued a certificate on March 4th, this CLE activity will be reported by IICLE to the Illinois MCLE Board no later than April 15. You can view your CLE activity reported by all providers, including IICLE, via the Illinois MCLE Board's CLE Transcript System at www.mcleboard.org. If your CLE Transcript does not reflect your CLE activity from the prior month by the 16th of a given month, please contact us for assistance at 217-787-2080.
For live webcasts, your certificate will be available to you shortly after the program has ended. You’ll receive an email from IICLE instructing you to log into your account to view your certificate. It will also be available under Certificates in the Webcasts tab. For Online On-Demand programs, your certificate will be available to you once you complete the program. You will be prompted to go to the next item to generate your certificate which you can then print or view in your CLE Tracker. For Live In-Person programs and Simulcasts, you should expect to receive a certificate by email within 2 weeks after the program date. For Audio Downloads, you will receive a certificate immediately after submitting the online affidavit to IICLE®. You can access the affidavit for your Audio Download by logging in to your account on the IICLE website, selecting Audios under the My Content tab and clicking the view affidavit button. If you have questions about the status of your certificate for an IICLE® program or if you need to request an expedited or duplicate copy of a certificate, please contact us at 217-787-2080.
