The Supreme Court of Ohio has waived self-study caps (i.e., 24 hours for live webinars and 12 for online courses) for judicial officers and attorneys with the last names beginning with M-Z for the compliance period ending Dec. 31, 2020.

Rule 4.2(A)(4) of the Code of Judicial Conduct requires all judicial candidates, including incumbent judges, to attend a two hour seminar on campaign practices, finance, and ethics. Further information about judicial candidates, including seminar materials, are available on the Ohio Board of Professional Conduct website.
