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

(a) Lawyers on active emeritus status must comply with MCLE requirements by participation in six hours of Accredited CLE during each 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 six hours of Accredited CLE. These lawyers must contact the MCLE Board Director prior to working with another active Utah lawyer. A lawyer on active emeritus status who elects to work in conjunction with another Utah lawyer on active status in lieu of complying with six hours of Accredited CLE must file with the Board a signed statement verifying that the lawyer 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) Return to active status. An emeritus lawyer who is on inactive status for six months or more and who returns to active status must complete the six-hour Accredited CLE requirement by June 30 of the Compliance Cycle that begins after the emeritus lawyer’s return to active status.

(d) An emeritus lawyer who has been on inactive status for less than six months may not elect emeritus active status until completing the Accredited CLE requirements that were incomplete at the time the emeritus lawyer elected to be enrolled as an inactive member.
