Due to concerns associated with the COVID-19 virus, the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia has granted a request from the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Commission for a temporary waiver of current CLE rules and regulations which limit the CLE credits for online and in-house credits to 12 credits, or half of the mandatory continuing legal education requirements. Attorneys will now be able to earn all or any portion of the required 24 CLE credit minimum through video, audio, correspondence, telephone seminars, computer-based training courses and in-house instruction, so long as the courses otherwise satisfy the requirements of the CLE rules and regulations and are approved for CLE credit in West Virginia.
CLE Transcripts currently do not reflect changes yet. We hope to have CLE changes in place soon. Check back soon for more information.
Several CLE providers are converting their live seminars to webinar format due to the coronavirus. Webinars are approved as online CLE credit under the current CLE rules; therefore, they are included in this waiver. The temporary waiver is limited to the 2018-2020 reporting period ending June 30, 2020.
