Rule 14-407. MCLE requirements for lawyers on active emeritus status.

(a) Commencing with calendar year 2012, lawyers on active emeritus status must comply with MCLE requirements by participation in 12 hours of Utah accredited CLE during each two-fiscal-year (July 1 through June 30) compliance cycle.

(b) Alternative. In the alternative, lawyers on active emeritus status may work in conjunction with another Utah lawyer on active status in lieu of complying with the requirement of 12 hours of Utah accredited CLE. These lawyers must contact the MCLE Board Director prior to working with another active Utah lawyer. Lawyers on active emeritus status who elect to work in conjunction with another Utah lawyer on active status in lieu of complying with 12 hours of Utah accredited CLE must file with the Board a signed statement verifying that he or she has complied with the requirements of this rule by July 31 following the end of the compliance cycle in which the report is due.

(c) If an Emeritus lawyer elects inactive status at the end of the licensing cycle (June 1-September 30) when his or her CLE reporting is due and elects to change back to active status within the first three months of the following licensing cycle, the lawyer will be required to complete the active emeritus CLE requirement for the previous CLE reporting period before returning to active status. 

Effective May 1, 2016.
