The Florida Bar recently announced a three-hour increase in its CLE requirements and is mandating technology-related CLE courses. The new requirement is 33 credit hours of approved continuing legal education activity every three years, effective January 1, 2017. Three of the 33 credit hours must be in approved technology programs.
