Attorney Forms:


The MCLE Board maintains forms for attorneys to use for specific purposes.
FORM 10b: Certificate of Teaching for Part-time Teaching

Any Illinois attorney who teaches part-time – either at an ABA-accredited law school, or a law course at a university, college or community college – earns credit. Lawyers employed full-time by the school are not eligible for this credit. The school issues a teaching certificate reflecting: (1) Actual presentation time plus (2) Preparation time for law school courses only (three times the actual presentation time).


This form is an example. Attorneys may direct school administrators to it to issue teaching credit.
