Ethics Course Requirement for LLP Applicants

Under Rule 207.8(5), all Colorado LLP applicants must have successfully completed an ethics class specific to LLPs or lawyers from an accredited school and the class must be completed before sitting for the LLP Exam. Activities accredited for “continuing judicial and legal education” for licensed attorneys to take do not count as a class from an accredited school.

Documentation of course completion may be satisfied through an official transcript or certification by the school.

The majority of the schools in the United States are accredited by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), or through another entity to which the ED has delegated authority – such as to a state agency or the American Bar Association. The U.S. Department of Education maintains an online Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs, and individual institutions can be searched through the search function at: Applicants who obtained a degree from a school outside the United States need to provide information of accreditation of the school from which they obtained their law degree.

The Community College of Denver is hosting the first ethics class specific to Colorado LLPs in the fall of 2023 and early 2024, which can be taken remotely. Deadlines to register apply. More information can be found here.
