The last date of the month that immediately precedes the attorney's birth month.
COMPLIANCE PERIOD RULE: Each attorney’s annual compliance/reporting period begins on the first day of their birth month and ends on the last date of the month immediately preceding the attorney's brith. Attorneys must submit their attendance by the last day of their birth month.
TRTCLE reports completed courses to the State Bar of Texas every two weeks. However, attorneys are required to confirm that their attendance is completed and reported timely if they have an impending deadline; we encourage self-reporting to ensure compliance.
Newly Admitted Requirement:
New admittees have an initial CLE compliance period of 24 months that begins on the first day of their birth month after receiving their license.
