Please Note: We are working through the reporting process for the many courses that we have and are offering this month. CLE hours for all LIVE courses will be reported to the Tennessee Commission on CLE before the end of December. After we report to the Commission on CLE, it takes that agency several days to post the hours on their website.

Please do not be concerned regarding the course hours meeting your 2015 CLE requirement. CLE course credit hours completed by midnight on December 31, 2015, meet your 2015 CLE requirement. All distance learning CLE hours completed by December 31 will be reported in January and will meet your 2015 CLE requirement. CLE sponsors, like the Nashville Bar Association, have 30 days after a seminar to report attorney credit hours to the Tennessee Commission on CLE.

We appreciate your patience.
