Continuing Legal Education
The Continuing Legal Education Committee with the Association's CLE staff plans and carries out an annual program of continuing legal education for members of the Bar. NHBA•CLE offers a creative, topical and substantively diverse calendar to meet the varied needs of New Hampshire practitioners at all levels of experience.
Each active member of the Bar is required to attend twelve hours of continuing legal education annually. (See NHMCLE Information (Rule 53). To meet this requirement, two hours must deal with ethics and professionalism and at least six hours must come from attendance at live programs. The Association is committed to offering a variety of high quality seminars, workshops, courses, and self-study options in many formats and locations. NHBA•CLE programs are developed by and for NH practitioners.
Most NHBA•CLE live programs are taped for viewing at video replay sessions or for purchase by Bar members. In addition, over 60 current CLE handbooks are available that contain practical information on substantive areas of law in New Hampshire.
Current NHBA•CLE handbooks are available on loan from the CLE library located at the NH Bar Center at 2 Pillsbury Street, Suite 300 in Concord.
