Did you recently take a program? If you took a CLE program offered through the NH Bar Association, no need to call or write. Your program will be posted in the appropriate system.

If you take any non-NH Bar Association CLE program after June 30, you will have to self-determine and self-report credits. The new posting and monitoring tool will be online later this month. Read more about what to keep track of now.

If you have not yet reported CLE programs that you took before July 1, 2014, follow these instructions.

The NHBA constitution and bylaws have been amended to create a new at-large seat to serve the sizable constituency of Bar members who are located outside New Hampshire.

If you are an active-status NHBA member with a practice located outside New Hampshire who is interested in learning more and participating in this bar association, please contact Jeannine McCoy, NHBA executive director.
