Publication Credit

Rule 53.3(G): NHMCLE credit shall be granted to principal authors of books, law review and journal articles and similar publications treating legal or law-related topics in a scholarly or practical manner and directed primarily to an audience of lawyers, judges and legal assistants. Such credit shall be granted in the reporting year in which publication first occurs, at the rate of one (1) hour of NHMCLE credit for each one thousand five hundred (1,500) words published. Lawyers desiring NHMCLE credit for such publications shall submit a copy of the same to the NHMCLE Board upon request, and shall retain a copy for a minimum of two (2) years after the close of the reporting year in question.

Regulation 53.3(G): Authorship of articles for general circulation, newspapers or magazines directed to a non-lawyer audience does not qualify for NHMCLE author credit under this Rule, nor does the authorship of CLE course materials qualify for credit. Presentation of a work of an appropriately scholarly character at a professional conference, symposium or similar activity will ordinarily qualify as publication for the purposes of Rule 53.3(G) and this regulation; provided that the author may not also claim teaching or attendance credit for such presentation, even if the activity would otherwise ordinarily qualify for such credit. In the case of jointly authored publications the time /credit should be divided between or among the joint authors to reflect the proportional effort devoted to the research and writing of the publication. 

Publication credit does not count toward the student attendance credit requirement in Rule 53.3A(3).
