APR 11.6. REPORTS AND ENFORCEMENT
Purpose: The proposed amendments to APR 11.6 are to intended give incentive to members to meet the MCLE requirements by the compliance deadline of February 1st. In the view of the Board of Continuing Legal Education, the current rule, giving an automatic extension to May 1st, sanctions MCLE non-compliance. Members experiencing hardship in meeting the MCLE requirements can petition the Board for extensions, exemptions, and waivers of the compliance requirements under this rule as well as under APR 11.4 and Regulation 110.
The current May 1st rule also results in a significant delay in suspending non-compliant members because Notice of Non-Compliance letters [reminders of that MCLE compliance is due] and Pendency letters [pre-suspension letters] cannot be sent until after May 1st. By eliminating this automatic extension the MCLE non-compliance suspension process can be completed in a more timely manner.
The amendment to APR 11.6(c)(4) is to match the amendment to Regulation 110 adopted by the Supreme Court in August 2004. Regulation 110 was amended to eliminate "restricted practice" as a reason for being able to petition the Board for an extension, exemption, or waiver of the MCLE requirements.
