Supreme Court requests comment on proposed changes to CLE rules

The Montana Supreme Court will take comment from members of the bench and bar on proposed changes to the Rules of Continuing Legal Education. The comment period will run through Friday, Jan. 27.

The court ordered the comment period after receiving a report from an ad hoc committee formed in May to review the Commission of Continuing Education's petition for rule changes. The committee focused the scope of its work on Rule 4A (Active Member Minimum MCLE requirements), Rule 6B (Accreditation and Accreditation Standards), and Rule 8 (Presumptive Accreditation). 

The committee consisted of K. Paul Stahl, chair of the CLE Commission; the Honorable Leslie Halligan, Fourth Judicial District; Pamela Bucy, chief disciplinary counsel; Mary Sheehy Moe, CLE Commission member; Helena attorney Aislinn Brown, representing the State Bar's Board of Trustees; and Missoula attorney Colin Stephens.
