A new proposal to require Connecticut attorneys to complete continuing legal education courses is under consideration. The concept has been floated multiple times in recent years, with the issue dividing the state’s legal community. It seems destined to do so again.

But proponents are hoping the latest plan — calling for 12 hours of CLE per year, with attorneys able to design their own curriculum — will garner enough support from rank-and-file bar members to persuade the Judicial Branch to implement it. The Rules Committee of the Superior Court is slated to discuss the proposal in November and December. The next meeting is scheduled for Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Supreme Court Building. If the Rules Committee approves the plan, it would next go to a public hearing, and then to the June meeting of all state judges.
