MCLE Credit

How do I get MCLE credit for an event I am/my organization is sponsoring?

The Oregon State Bar MCLE Department is charged with accrediting presentations for MCLE credit. Sponsors must submit a description of the presentation or a schedule, along with the appropriate form. Forms are available from the MCLE home page at

For questions, please contact the MCLE Department at (503) 431-6368 or toll-free at (800) 452-8260, ext. 368.

The sponsor of the CLE event I attended did not apply for Oregon MCLE credits. Is it possible for me to still get Oregon-approved credit?

Yes. As a member of the Oregon State Bar you may apply for credit by completing MCLE Form 2.

For questions regarding MCLE credit and forms, please contact the MCLE Department at (503) 431-6368 or toll-free at (800) 452-8260, ext. 368.

How can I report MCLE credit to another jurisdiction if the CLE event I attended has only been approved for credit?

Each state has different rules regarding CLE accreditation and approved formats (e.g., some states limit the number of self-study credits available via video or audio formats or online). Your best resource is to contact the state in which you wish to report the credit to obtain the applicable reporting information.

For events sponsored by the OSB CLE Seminars Department, certificates of attendance are available to indicate the name of the seminar, seminar date and location, and the number and type of credits approved by the Oregon State Bar.
