MANDATORY CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION (MCLE)

The Supreme Court, in Bar Matter No. 850, requires all lawyers to complete every three (3) years at least thirty-six (36) hours of Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) activities. It aims to ensure that throughout the lawyers’ career, they keep abreast with law and jurisprudence, maintain the ethics of their profession, and enhance the standards of the practice of law.

However, lawyers who are admitted to the Bar either one (1) year after the start of the current compliance period must comply with the two-thirds (2/3) of the credit units required (24 c.u.) for that period; while those admitted two (2) years after the start of the compliance period should comply with one-third (1/3) of the required credit units (12 c.u.) [See list of credit units here]

The New Era University – College of Law is an MCLE-accredited provider since 2015. The 7th Compliance Period started on April 15, 2019 and will end on April 14, 2022.
