Accreditation and CLE Rules for New Hampshire
NHMCLE does not approve CLE activities or accredit providers for the NH Minimum CLE requirement. New Hampshire attorneys must self-determine whether a program is eligible for credit and self-report their attendance. The National Academy of Continuing Legal Education believes that its courses meet the requirements of NH Supreme Court Rule 53 and qualify towards the annual NHMCLE requirement.
Important change effective July 1st 2016:
New Hampshire attorneys are no longer required to take Live CLE classes. All CLE credits can be fulfilled with self-study courses.
Attorneys must complete 12 CLE hours / 720 minutes per compliance period, including a minimum of 2 Ethics hours. The Rule 53 compliance due date is June 30th. All 12 CLE hours, including Ethics, may be fulfilled with National Academy of Continuing Legal Education using our Audio CD, DVD, Online, & Smartphone courses.
New lawyers are required to take a program sponsored by the NH Bar Association and the Supreme Court called "Practical Skills" within 2 years of admittance. This program is offered twice a year by the NH Bar Association.
Excess CLE hours may be used to fulfill the requirement of Rule 53 for the reporting year next following, but may not be used to fulfill the requirement in any other reporting year.
