Professional Responsibility Changes

The Illinois Supreme Court has amended the Illinois rule regarding the professional responsibility minimum continuing legal education requirement, Rule 794(d).  The Rule will still require Illinois lawyers to complete 6 hours of professional responsibility CLE every reporting period, but, effective July 1, 2017, of those 5 hours, one hour must be devoted to diversity and inclusion, and one hour must be devoted to mental health and substance abuse.

You can read the Court’s press release here and the revised Rule here.
