After initial admission to the bar, Arkansas attorneys must complete a minimum 12 hours of CLE (Continuing Legal Education) annually to maintain their law license. Over the past 12 months, the attorney’s at Bailey & Oliver Law Firm have together earned over 200 CLE hours!
Why should lawyers complete 12 CLE hours annually? CLE hours provide lawyers with updated information concerning legal developments and help them sharpen their skills in particular practice areas. As professionals, it is critical for lawyers to extend learning beyond law school. Keeping up-to-date on advances and changes in state and federal law is essential to maintaining a competent law practice.
What does this mean to the consumer? As a consumer, when you seek legal assistance, you want a knowledgeable, informed lawyer working on your case. According to the Arkansas Bar Association and the Arkansas Judiciary, 12 hours of annual CLE is sufficient. What if your lawyer recorded 76.75 hours of CLE in one year?
