Supreme Court Extends CLE Order: No Limit on In-House and Distance Learning CLE in 2021

The Supreme Court of Georgia issued an Order on May 14, 2021, eliminating the in-person CLE requirement for the 2021 CLE requirement through the grace period of March 31, 2022. This Order allows attorneys to complete all CLE hours for their 2021 CLE requirement by in-house and distance learning CLE programs.  

A portion of the May 14 Supreme Court Order states as follows: 

Given that the COVID-19 outbreak is still ongoing and in-person CLE programs will return slowly, the Court determines that it is appropriate to again suspend the limitation on  self-study, in-house, and distance-learning CLE programs for the 2021 year. Effective immediately and continuing through March 31, 2022, lawyers may earn all or any portion of the required twelve hours for 2021 through self-study, in-house, or distance-learning continuing legal education activities under Regulations 8 (e) and (15), so long as those activities otherwise satisfy the requirements of those Regulations. This temporary, partial suspension of Regulations 8 (e) and (15) shall apply to continuing legal education activities completed on or before the grace period of March 31, 2022.

A full copy of the Order can be found here.
