Beginning July 1, 2019, the MCLE Board will collect information on individual attorney’s course attendance data. PCAM’s attendance pages will be modified to collect this information. That means that each CLE provider will need to input into PCAM information about each Illinois-licensed attorney participating in a course or activity, including the attorney’s Illinois registration number (known as ARDC number), number of general hours and number of specific professional responsibility credits earned.
If an attorney is audited, the Board will have the attorney’s course attendance information directly from course providers. We anticipate that this information will make the audit process more streamlined for attorneys, course providers and the Board.
What does this mean for future CLE programs: Illinois Attorneys will be REQUIRED to provide their license numbers so that the CLE provider can report this information to the MCLE Board.
