The following is a brief description of this process. TBLS requires attorneys and paralegals who are certified or seeking certification to meet a specific number of CLE hours. TBLS reviews all continuing legal education (CLE) INDEPENDENTLY from the Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) Department of the State Bar of Texas. MCLE approval of a course does not insure TBLS approval. TBLS prefers to review courses for approval prior to the actual date of the event. A course sponsor (or any individual certified attorney and/or paralegal) may request TBLS approval by mailing or faxing course information such as the brochure, or outline. The course will be reviewed, and the sponsor and/or individual will be notified of the course’s approval status. Courses must be of an advanced nature in order to qualify for TBLS approval. Computer courses, office management courses, or basic skill courses are usually not approved.
