Such request for extension of time shall be filed with the Director by December 1 of the end of the annual reporting period.

An extension of time shall not exceed a period of six (6) months immediately following the last day of the year in which the requirements were not met.

   (B) If, due to disability, hardship, or extenuating circumstances, an attorney is unable to meet the minimum required hours for CLE during the annual reporting period as required by § 3-401.4, the attorney may apply to the Director for a waiver of the minimum education requirements.  Such request for waiver shall be filed with the Director by December 1 of the end of the annual reporting period.

After one (1) year, the attorney may reapply for an extension of the waiver if such disability, hardship, or extenuating circumstances still exist.
