Accreditation and CLE Rules for Nevada
All courses offered by the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education have been directly approved by the Nevada Board of CLE. Audio, Video and Online programs are considered an “alternate format”. All 12 credits, including ethics and substance abuse, may be earned with National Academy of Continuing Legal Education under the alternate format rule. Effective February 10, 2013 Nevada attorneys must take 1 credit of substance abuse, addictive disorders and or mental health issues every three years. Thus, the requirement for 2014 is 9 general credits, 2 ethics credits and 1 substance abuse credit. The requirement for 2015 and 2016 will be 10 general credits and 2 ethics credits. If an attorney completed 1 credit of substance abuse, addictive disorders and or mental health issues in 2013, they will be allowed to carry it forward to 2014 as a one time special exception. Attorneys must self-report completion of CLE. The Certificate of Completion issued by National Academy of CLE may be used to verify attendance.
Nevada attorneys may carryover up to 24 credits (20 general + 4 ethics/professional conduct) from one year to the next 2 calendar years.
