PMBR Course (2018-2019)

The PMBR four-hour self-assessment course for 2018-2019 cycle is divided into eight interactive modules aimed at helping lawyers improve how they practice law. Each module is between fifteen to forty-five minutes in length. Lawyers who complete the entire course or any module within the course will receive free Illinois MCLE professional responsibility credit.

Please note that completion of the current PMBR (2018-2019) course does not fulfill the PMBR requirement for the 2020-2021 cycle. The PMBR course for the 2020-2021 cycle is scheduled to be released in April 2020. We encourage Illinois lawyers to visit this site in April 2020 to access the PMBR (2020-2021) course offerings. In addition, we will send an email update to Illinois lawyers once the PMBR (2020-2021) course is available.

For answers to commonly asked questions, please visit our PMBR FAQs page.
