UT Law CLE Registration for Recent Graduates

Texas Las CLE registration for recent graduates is limited and may not be available for all conferences. You must contact Justin Schaumburg, Texas Law CLE, at jschaumburg@law.utexas.edu or 512-475-6700 to confirm availability. There is a small fee to attend as you will be able to bank your CLE credits for your MCLE compliance year.

Please visit the Texas Law CLE site for a list of upcoming CLEs.

  • Discounted Rate ($75) – attend a CLE conference and receive full registrant benefits including course materials on a USB key, meals at the conference (if offered) and complimentary 180-day access to Bonus eCourses—with papers, slides and audio—for CLE credit you may have missed at the conference. Available in your Texas Law online account in “Your Briefcase” 6-8 weeks after the conference.

Per the State Bar of Texas’s Definition of Compliance Year, if you are a newly licensed attorney, your initial MCLE compliance year is a 24-month period. It begins on the first day of the month you were born, after the date you are licensed.  It ends two years later, on the last day of the month that immediately precedes the month you were born.

Newly licensed attorneys may also claim MCLE credit for accredited CLE completed one year prior to the beginning date of the initial compliance year.

Each attorney has an automatic grace period until the end of his or her birth month, in which to complete and report MCLE hours for that compliance year. All CLE must be completed and reported (received by the State Bar of Texas MCLE Director) by the last day of the birth month in order to avoid a non-compliance penalty fee.
