NHMCLE News: NHMCLE Supreme Court Rule 53 Compliance Year Half Over

The 2010 NHMCLE SC Rule 53 compliance period ends June 30, 2010: does your online CLE record correctly reflect the CLE credits you have completed up to 30 days ago? SC Rule 53 calls for your attendance to be noted in your record within 30 days of course completion. Make sure you ask Annual Sponsors to report your attendance to NHMCLE – and if you don’t know who the Annual Sponsors are, review that entry on the NHMCLE Web page, If your record is not correct, take the appropriate action now to bring it up-to-date.

Lawyers who take courses from non-Annual Sponsors have 30 days from course completion to submit an Attorney Credit Application Form with attachments for the activity to be reviewed for CLE credit in NH.

While lawyers can request revisions to courses already listed in their records, they cannot add courses directly. Courses are added only through a lawyer’s application or reports of sponsors. See the Web page for assistance in this process. If you do not have access to the Web, contact Lee Jones in the NHMCLE office, 603-715-3222.

Almost 200 lawyers still remain non-compliant with SC Rule 53 for the 2009 compliance period. Beginning Feb 2, 2010, each will have to pay late filing fees of $350 and in March, their names will be sent to the NH Supreme Court with a request for suspension.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
