Tennessee CLE Requirements at a Glance

An image showing a gavel and law books

Every year by December 31st, Tennessee attorneys are required to complete 15 hours of Continuing Legal Education, three hours of which must cover Ethics.

The Tennessee Supreme Court has amended the Rule for Mandatory Continuing Legal Education to remove limitations on distance-learning continuing legal education (?CLE?) credits. The Order was filed and effective on November 1, 2022. The change to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 21 deletes the previous requirement that Tennessee-licensed attorneys with a CLE obligation earn at least seven CLE credit hours through in-person courses each year and no more than eight hours through distance-learning courses. The Court has waived the in-person requirement since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing attorneys to earn all of their CLE credits through distance learning. The November 1 Order makes that change permanent.

MCLEZ provides online continuing legal education programs that have been pre-approved by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization.
