Continuing Legal Education Reporting Periods
Share |

North Dakota's attorney membership is divided into three compliance groups. Compliance periods for the three groups are staggered so that each group reports compliance in a different year. Compliance periods are 36 months (three years) in length (depending on date of licensure).

Example:

  • CLE Reporting Group 3 reports in 2020 for the period beginning July 1, 2017–June 30, 2020.
  • CLE Reporting Group 1 reports in 2021 for the period beginning July 1, 2018–June 30, 2021.
  • CLE Reporting Group 2 reports in 2022 for the period beginning July 1, 2019-June 30, 2022.
