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. First, view these brief PCAM video tutorials. Later on this page you can request a PCAM account.
New Rule! For attorney credit earned July 1, 2019 and after, providers must collect and report, attorney ARDC numbers, names, completion dates and hours earned. Stand by...PCAM instructions will be available in Summer 2019.
