Course Requirements and Provider Responsibilities

All Illinois CLE courses must meet the standards in the MCLE Rules and MCLE Board policies.

Online Course Application Process - PCAM

The MCLE Board’s online Provider Course Accreditation Management system is PCAM. Providers submit all course-related information (applications, attorney attendance data and fees) via PCAM.

Attendance Reporting

Providers must collect and report, attorney ARDC numbers, names, completion dates and hours earned and report them in PCAM.

Instructions for entering attendance data in PCAM are located on the Support tab of our website.
