Supreme Court Rule 53 – NHMCLE Annual Sponsor List Announced
The NH Minimum Continuing Legal Education Board has designated the following CLE providers as NHMCLE Annual Sponsors for this reporting year. CLE programs presented by these organizations are accepted for NHMCLE credit. If you complete any of their CLE programs, please request that your attendance/teaching participation be reported to NHMCLE, and that you receive an attendance record for your files in the event you are audited. Sponsors have 30 days to report attendance to your online CLE record where you may review it to confirm that the report has been made correctly.
If you take courses or complete other activities for CLE credit, such as teaching CLE and publishing in legal journals from sponsors NOT on this list, please complete and submit an Attorney Credit Application Form (link) with the required attachments within 30 days of program completion. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Lee Jones in the NHMCLE Office at 603-715-3222 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Share This with Those Who Assist with CLE Compliance
Current filing status: About 400 lawyers received Notices of Delinquency for failure to complete their CLE credits and file their completed Certificates of Compliance. These lawyers now owe $50 and have until December 1, 2009 to complete their CLE compliance.
These lawyers also received duplicate copies of their 2009 Certificates. Instructions to file are on the reverse side of each. These lawyers should submit their late fees and completed Certificates of Compliance all together when they have completed their CLE credits. The late filing fee should be made payable to NHMCLE. Failure to meet the December deadline will result in additional late filing fees being assessed.
ABA course attendance: Any lawyers who attend ABA programs need to notify NHMCLE by marking the sessions attended on the ABA Uniform Certificate of Attendance and sending a copy of this form to the NHMCLE Office at the Bar Center. This way their credits will be entered into their online records correctly.
Reminder to all lawyers: Make sure that you maintain your CLE attendance records for all courses you completed for three years as required by SC Rule 53. All your CLE attendance for the year must appear in your online record. Whenever you take a course, check the Annual Sponsor List on the website, for guidance to see what you have to do to assure that the courses appear in your record. All your attendance should appear within 30 days of course completion. If you do not find an answer at the webpage, send your questions to MCLE@nhbar.org.
