Bridge the Gap

In May of 2002, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania passed a Rule requiring newly admitted lawyers to complete the Bridge the Gap program as a condition of compliance prior to the first CLE deadline on which CLE credits are due. If your admission date is May 2002 and forward, you are required to complete the Bridge the Gap program.

Also, Disciplinary Board Rule §89.279 requires that formerly admitted attorneys seeking reinstatement from disbarment or suspension for more than one year, or from administrative suspension, retired status or inactive status for more than three years, must take courses meeting the requirements of the current schedule published by the Office of the Secretary within one year preceding the filing a petition for reinstatement.
