CLE Overview
Share |

The Continuing Legal Education Committee administers a program established by the Supreme Court of the Virgin Islands which requires attorneys to attend legal education classes each year. All active members must complete 12 hours of continuing legal education in each calendar year, 2 of which shall be ethics or professionalism, and shall only carry forward 6 hours (2 ethics) to the following year. This requirement helps ensure that lawyers keep abreast of the latest legal developments. Please review VISCR 208 for a complete explanation of compliance, deadline, and fees. 

The CLE Committee is dedicated to meeting your educational needs!

The department concentrates on providing high-quality seminars on a broad range of topics at a fair and reasonable cost.

CLE THROUGH VIBA

CLE courses taken through VIBA will be automatically listed for you under the heading "VIBA CLE".  Please do not duplicate those entries.  If you attend a VIBA event but it does not appear on your tracking page, contact us to have it corrected. 

The contribution of volunteers and your strong support as seminar participants make it possible for the us to continue to provide quality and timely continuing legal education.
