Regulation Fees

CLE providers are required to pay $4 per hour per attendee for courses held in Georgia. For seminars held outside of Georgia if the CLE provider elects not to pay the $4 per hour fee, then the attorney receiving credit for the hours will be required to pay the fee.

Professionalism Fee

The Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism (CJCP) was created in 1989 by the Supreme Court of Georgia. From 1998-2018, a $15 per hour professionalism fee was charged. In 2018, the CJCP changed the professionalism fee from a $15 per hour fee to a $15 per year fee to encourage lawyers to take more professionalism courses. In 2020, the CJCP reduced the Court-mandated surcharge to $11 per year. The surcharge shall be assessed annually on the license fee notice for all active members less than 70 years old.

Important Deadlines and Late Fees

The deadline for lawyers to complete their 2023 CLE requirement, including the grace period, is March 31, 2024. A $100 late fee will be assessed if the lawyer's CLE requirement is not complete by March 31, 2024. All 2023 hours can be completed by approved in-person or distance learning CLE programs.
