Illinois MCLE Board Website up and running...

The Illinois MCLE Board recently published updated Frequently Updated Questions and Forms on their temporary web page. It provides answers to questions about the new Illinois MCLE rules. There's quite a bit of information available including FAQ sections for attorneys and CLE providers.

Much of the information regarding approved CLE providers and specific activies that are approved for CLE has not yet been provided by the board. I'm personally somewhat curious as to how they'll view legal writing. Supreme Court Rule 795 references "law books" and "law review" writing as items for which CLE can be gained. Those of us who edit legal newsletters are keeping our fingers crossed about that writing being included.

Anyone want to be a CLE provider with me? Shoot me an e-mail. I surely think that there are two or three areas of law I'm fairly expert on. We can market our law firms like typical CLE presentations offer, gain our own MCLE credit, and run a viable side business. Let's do it!
