Illinois Supreme Court Offers Three-Month MCLE Extension

EDITOR'S NOTE: IMPORTANT — Extensions are not automatic, you must submit request.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Illinois Supreme Court recognizes attorneys in the 2018-2020 reporting period may be unable to complete their continuing education credits by the upcoming deadline of June 30, 2020 (applies to those with last names beginning A-M). In consultation with the MCLE Board, the Court decided to provide every attorney in this group the option to secure a no-cost, three-month extension to complete those credits. An attorney secures that extension by submitting an online report to the Board no later than July 31, 2020.

The MCLE Board’s online reporting system at is available now for attorneys in the 2018-2020 reporting period:

  • Attorneys who complete their credits by June 30, 2020, will report compliance by July 31, 2020, at no cost.
  • Attorneys who do not complete their credits by June 30, 2020, will report “Not Yet Complied” by July 31, 2020, to secure the three-month extension at no cost (see instructions). No reason for the extension is needed. Those attorneys then have until September 30, 2020, to complete their credits and report compliance to the Board.
