How many CLE credits do I have?

Answer: The CLE Board of the Colorado Supreme Court keeps track of this information. To obtain a transcript of your CLE activities with dates of your current compliance period and a list of credits earned, visit http://www.coloradosupremecourt.com/CLE/Transcripts.asp. You will need your attorney registration number and date of birth to view your records.

State of Colorado Supreme Court
Board of Continuing Legal and Judicial Education

How many credits do I have to earn, and how much time do I have to earn them?

Answer: You must earn forty-five general credits over a compliance period of three calendar years. Seven of these credits must be in legal ethics. Credits are units of value assigned to a qualifying activity usually on the basis of the time you are involved in the activity.

All newly admitted attorneys must satisfy four of the seven hour legal ethics requirement during their first compliance period by completing the Colorado Bar Association's Mandatory Course on Professionalism.

The initial compliance period for newly admitted attorneys includes the balance of the year in which they are admitted plus the three subsequent calendar years.

How do I become licensed to practice law in Colorado? Is there reciprocity with other states, or will I have to take the Colorado bar exam?

Answer: For the answers to these questions, you will need to contact the State Board of Law Examiners, an office of the Colorado Supreme Court. They can be reached at:

    State Board of Law Examiners
    1560 Broadway, Suite 1820
    Denver, CO 80202
    (303) 866-6626

You can find more information on the Board of Law Examiners website at www.coloradosupremecourt.com.

If I change my address with the CBA, does this also get changed at Attorney Registration?

Answer: No. The CBA is separate from Attorney Registration, and we maintain separate membership databases. If you give the CBA an address change, you should also notify Attorney Registration at (303) 866-6400 or toll free at 1-877-888-1370. Visit their website at http://www.coloradosupremecourt.com/Registration/Services.htm#AddChg.

Giving the CBA an address change will also change it for your local bar association, and any other bar-related mailings. We do share our address changes with Continuing Legal Education of Colorado, Inc. (CLECI) as frequently as possible, but you may also want to call them at (303) 860-0608 and let them know that you have moved.
