The Mission of the Commission for Continuing Legal Education is to enhance the quality of the judiciary, bar, and others within its jurisdiction, by developing, administering, and regulating continuing educational requirements for judges and attorneys, registration and training of mediators, and accreditation of attorney specialization programs.
In 1986, Indiana became the 18th state to require attorneys to receive Continuing Legal Education (CLE). The Supreme Court adopted the mandatory continuing legal education rule for lawyers and judges and made it effective January 1, 1987. This rule was largely unchanged until major amendments were made effective in 1997.
