Proposed Amendments to Supreme Court Rules 800-811: Rules Relating to Continuing Legal Education

The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting public comment on proposed amendments to Rules 800-811: Rules Relating to Continuing Legal Education.

The amendments are related to an administrative restructuring within the Kansas judicial branch to achieve operational and organizational efficiencies. The changes will not affect the excellent level of service members of the bar have come to expect from the CLE Commission and its staff.

The Supreme Court thanks the staff of the CLE Commission and all current and past Commission members for their effort and dedication to enable and support continuous improvement in the performance of Kansas lawyers.

Amendments to Rule 800-811 include:

  • changing the Continuing Legal Education Commission to the Kansas Continuing Legal Education Board, which will help the Supreme Court and the Office of Judicial Administration administer and regulate continuing legal education;

  • updating continuing legal education delivery methods; and

  • updating the rule format.

Proposed amended Rules 800-811 are on the judicial branch website at www.kscourts.org under the headingWhat's New.

Comment may be made by email to publiccomments@kscourts.org until noon Thursday, September 19, 2019. The subject line must read "Rules 800-811."
