Order Promulgating Amendments to the Rules of the Minnesota State Board of Continuing Legal Education Effective January 1, 2021
On Tuesday, December 22, 2020, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued an Order granting the Petition of five licensed Minnesota lawyers filed on August 7, 2019. Effective January 1, 2021, Rules 6D and 9B(4) are amended to permit lawyers to view and report up to 30 on-demand credits towards reporting periods ending after that date. Courses must be approved for credit prior to viewing per Rule 6D and must be viewed on or after January 1, 2021 if in excess of the 15 credits previously allowed under the Rules. The Court also advised that unless good cause is shown on or before September 30, 2023, the number of on-demand credits permitted will become unlimited as of January 1, 2024 for courses viewed and reported on or after that date. Live webinars continue to count as live courses and are not subject to the same limitations as on demand programs. If you have any questions, please contact the office at the firstname.lastname@example.org.
