MCLE Reporting, Viewing Free Online CLE, Accessing CLE History

Reporting requirements:
Those of you in the last part of the alphabet (N – Z) have a completion deadline of 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 2017.  To avoid late fees, your compliance deadline (or report a valid exemption) is 11:59 p.m. on July 31, 2017.  The MCLE rules state that you must complete 30 total hours, including at least six hours of Professional Responsibility.  

To report online or check your specific requirements, please log into the MCLE Board website (, then go to “Report Compliance”. To learn more, you can also search their FAQs with the keywords “reporting period”.

If you find that you need additional credits, you can view the KCBA FREE Online Seminars.  We currently have 20.25 General Credits and 6.5 hours of Professional Responsibility Credits available for viewing.  Even if you have not attended any seminars for CLE credit during this reporting period, you will be able to complete most of your credit reporting requirements just by watching the KCBA FREE Online Seminars!  (Please note that if you attended a seminar in person, you cannot get credits for that seminar again by watching it online.)


  • Login to the KCBA website using the email address the KCBA has on file for you.  (VERY IMPORTANT – if you create a new email address it will NOT link with your established KCBA Account!)
  • Once logged in, from the KCBA website homepage, click on the “Watch Free Online CLE” bar located in the center of the page.
  • Click on the video you would like to watch.
  • Click on the “I Agree” button which indicates that you understand you must watch the entire video to obtain your credits.  We cannot issue partial credits for online seminars.
  • The video viewer will open on the left side of the page.  Seminar materials can be accessed through the Media Tab on the right side of the page.
  • Once you have watched the entire video (let it play through to completion), an affidavit will pop up under the video viewer. 
  • Click the “I Agree” button and then the “Confirm” button to obtain your certificate.
  • Certificates can also be accessed at a later date through your online account under “CLE History”.  (See below)
  • TROUBLE SHOOTING:  We recommend using Firefox or Google Chrome for your browser.  You may need to disable pop-ups from the KCBA in order to watch the seminar or to get your certificate.  If you need password help, you can click on “Forgot my password” and follow the instructions, or call the KCBA office.

The KCBA no longer mails CLE certificates after the seminars.  You can find a complete listing of all the seminars and for-credit committee meetings you’ve attended with the KCBA in your member account.  This is also easy to do….here’s how:

  • Login to the KCBA website using the email address the KCBA has on file for you.  (VERY IMPORTANT – if you create a new email address it will NOT link with your established KCBA Account!)
  • On your member account page, click on the tab that says “CLE History”.
  • The date defaults to the last three months, so any seminars or for-credit committee meetings you’ve attended in the last three months will appear in a list here.
  • To adjust the date, click in the center of the white “Date Range” box. 
  • Click on “Custom Range”, and then you can adjust the date on the pop-up calendar back as far as you need to.  For those who are reporting this year, you may want to set the date for July 1, 2014 so you can see your two-year history.
  • Once you’ve selected the beginning date, click on the “Apply” Button and the screen will revert to your list.
  • Click on the “Update” button and the date range will adjust to the dates you specified.

You will see a list of everything you’ve attended, which even totals your general and professionalism (ethics) hours.   If you want to view or print your certificate, just click on the “View” button.  When the certificate opens, you can print it.

Using this feature means that you can check your standing for CLE Credits obtained with the KCBA at any time.  You don’t need to call the bar office to check your credits and you can print certificates at any time!
