Commission announces new fees for CLE

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Attorneys and sponsors who are late in reporting attendance to the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education will be subject to up to a $50 fee, according to an order released by the Indiana Supreme Court.

The June 10 order outlines the fees that the commission may charge attorneys, mediators or sponsors for course approvals and attendance accreditation. Amendments approved in September 2013 to the Indiana Rules for Admission to the Bar and the Discipline of Attorneys, and the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education and Mandatory Judicial Education Guidelines allow the commission to charge the fees.

The Supreme Court outlined the fee schedule in its order, which includes a late fee assessed for any late course approvals or attendance accreditation of $25 or $50. Attorneys and sponsors will be charged the late fee if course attendance is not submitted within 30 days of course completion.

There will be no fee for reporting attendance when an Indiana attorney reports in a timely manner.

The new fee schedule also allows for charging some attorneys, mediators and education sponsors seeking course accreditation with the commission an application fee.  

The fees take effect Jan. 1, 2015.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
