Effective May 1, 2021, Utah is moving to a one year reporting cycle and has changed its CLE requirement to be 12 credits per year including at least 1 Ethics and 1 Professionalism. Previously, Utah attorneys had a two year reporting cycle that consisted of 24 credits including 2 Ethics and 1 Professionalism.
Utah attorneys with a compliance reporting period of July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2021 will start the one-year compliance cycle on July 1, 2021 for the 2021-2022 reporting year. Utah attorneys with a compliance reporting period of July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2022 will still complete 24 credit hours and then will start the one year compliance cycle on July 1, 2022, for the 2022-2023 reporting year.
In addition, Utah has added a new format called Verified E-CLE which counts as a Live format.
The state has also added a paralegal requirement and adjusted their speaking, writing, etc. credit maximums to reflect the new one year cycle.
