We promote professional responsibility education as a vehicle for changing lawyer behavior to exemplify the highest values of our profession.
Pursuant to Supreme Court Rule Rule 794(d), we approve all courses and activities that qualify for Illinois professional responsibility CLE credit and assist CLE providers in developing and facilitating CLE courses that encourage conduct reflective of professionalism ideals in a 21st century legal landscape.
Starting with the reporting period ending June 30, 2019, Illinois attorneys are required to report that they have taken one hour of diversity and inclusion CLE and one hour of mental health and substance abuse (wellness) CLE as part of their six-hour professional responsibility CLE requirement. Further information about these new rules can be found here.
