    Rhode Island Supreme Court
    John E. Fogarty Judicial Annex
    24 Weybosset Street, 3rd Floor
    Providence, Rhode Island 02903
    (401) 222-4942

    (Pursuant to Supreme Court Article 4, Rule 3)

    MCLE Commission

    MCLE Regulations


    The Education Office administers all judicial
    education programs for state court judges and magistrates
    and oversees mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE)
    programs for the 6,000 Rhode Island licensed attorneys.
    Both types of programs share the same goal: to sharpen the
    ability of the bench and bar to respond to the dynamic
    changes in our community.

    The Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Commission
    has thirteen members. The commission oversees all
    activities of the Education Office related to the MCLE
    requirements for attorneys, including communicating with
    sponsor agencies, reviewing attorney applications and
    compliance reports, notifying attorneys of non compliance,
    and developing curriculum in conjunction with Bar
    Associations, law schools, law firms, and private agencies.

    Commission duties include the review of exemption
    requests, course eligibility, and finances. Other
    commission functions include reexamining the MCLE rules to
    meet the evolving needs of the legal profession and
    responding to advances in educational technology. The
    commission also cooperates with other MCLE states to
    facilitate reciprocal compliance for multi-state licensed

    Note to multi-state licensed attorneys: For information
