This course is intended to satisfy a requirement of Virginia Supreme Court Rule 1A:1, Admission to Practice in This Commonwealth Without Examination.  One of the requirements of Rule 1A:1 is that the applicant:

Certify in writing under oath that the applicant has completed 12 hours of instruction approved by the Virginia Continuing Legal Education Board on Virginia substantive and/or procedural law within the preceding six-month period.  Rule 1A:1(b)(3).

Please note this important information:

  • Only a course specifically approved by the MCLE Board for Rule 1A:1 Reciprocity qualifies for the required 12 hours of instruction under Rule 1A:1.
  • Our other seminars do not qualify for Rule 1A:1 reciprocity, and any CLE courses taken before your Virginia admission to the bar cannot be applied towards CLE requirements in Virginia, i.e. you have to be a Virginia lawyer to take CLE for credit in Virginia.
  • The VBBE requires that applicants complete the reciprocity course requirement "within the preceding six-month period" of submitting your Admission Without Examination Application.
  • This course is not discountable and cannot be purchased using Bundle Credits.
