    Product Description


    Temporary emergency order re: Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:16
    In light of the ongoing and urgent public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Supreme Judicial Court, pursuant to its rulemaking authority, issues the following ORDER:

    Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:16, requiring that lawyers newly admitted to the bar of the Commonwealth complete a Practicing with Professionalism Course within eighteen months of admission, is suspended until further order of the court. Suspension of this Rule shall not affect the status of individuals who have been suspended in accordance with S.J.C.  Rule 3:16, Section 5.

    This Order shall be effective on May 14, 2020, and shall remain in effect until further order of the court.

    Observance of the highest ethical standards, proficiency in essential elements of law practice, civility, and engagement in the legal community are among the hallmarks of professionalism. MCLE’s dynamic Practicing with Professionalism faculty bring these principles to life.

    SJC Rule 3:16 requires all newly admitted lawyers in Massachusetts to complete a mandatory professionalism course within 18 months of admission. Spend the morning with MCLE and build a foundation in  professionalism that will serve you throughout your career—and life.

    Resource materials

    A major advantage of taking the Practicing with Professionalism course at MCLE is the rich compilation of resource materials—provided in electronic format—over 1,000 pages of original articles from existing MCLE publications, and materials from a number of regulatory agencies and professional organizations.

    These materials serve not only as a valuable online companion for the course, but also as a continuing resource for research and reference in daily practice.

    Attendance Policy

    Attendance at this program, per SJC Rule 3:16, is a post-admission requirement. Only those already admitted to the Massachusetts bar will receive credit for the course; anyone not yet admitted to the bar will have to retake the course after admission.

    Attendance at the entire program is required. Registrants who arrive after the course has commenced will not be permitted to attend the day's program, but must register for another course date.
