The Indiana Supreme Court has announced that any virtual continuing legal education courses taken during this time will not count toward the credit-hour limitations on distance education.
“Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person gatherings for continuing legal education often continue to be unavailable, not recommended, or not permitted. It is important, however, that members of Indiana’s Bench and Bar continue their professional development and education,” Chief Justice Loretta Rush wrote in a Supreme Court order.
Thus, the high court on Wednesday ordered that, until further notice, “any continuing legal education courses taken by attorneys, judges, and State Level Judicial Officers shall not count toward the credit-hour limitations on distance education set forth in Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 28, Sections 3(a) and 3(b), and Rule 29, Section 3(a) and the Order entered by this Court on March 31, 2020, under Case No. 20S-MS-239.”
