Regulation 110. Exemptions, Waivers, Modifications


(a) As a general proposition, all active members of the Bar Association are required to comply with the provisions of APR 11. The alternative to compliance is transfer to inactive status. The CLE Board may grant extensions, waivers or modifications of the time deadlines or education requirements specified in APR 11 and these Regulations Applications for extensions, waivers or modifications shall be made in writing and supported by a sworn statement in the form of an affidavit or declaration.

(b) Undue Hardship, Age, Practice or Disability. Exemptions from the continuing legal education requirement, or waiver, or modification of such requirement, based upon undue hardship, age or disability should be granted only sparingly. Consequently, before the CLE Board will consider granting an application for exemption, waiver or modification based upon these grounds, the applicant must establish to the satisfaction of the CLE Board that (1) such condition of undue hardship, age, or disability warrants granting an exemption, waiver, or modification; and (2) the applicant has not been in and will not be engaged in the unsupervised practice of law during the relevant period.

Reviser's note: The typographical error in the above material occurred in the copy filed by the State Supreme Court and appears in the Register pursuant to the requirements of RCW 34.08.040.
