New Online NHMCLE System Puts You in the Driver’s Seat

A streamlined, speedier administrative system is in place for NH Supreme Court Rule 53 - NHMCLE (NH Minimum Continuing Legal Education). Effective for reporting year from July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015.

Coming soon - a new reporting tool developed by the NH Bar Association for the convenience of members. Watch for the announcement.

As an attorney eligible under Supreme Court Rule 53, you are in control of reporting your CLE credits.

You determine whether a particular program meets the rule’s requirements using an online checklist. You have the freedom to choose –within the bounds of the rule. Earn credits responsibly!

Programs offered through the NH Bar will be automatically entered into NHBA members’ records.

Choosing a NH Bar program for NHMCLE credit is like using the express lane.

For non-Bar CLE, attorneys will self-report their participation using the new reporting tool.

No more waiting for course providers to report your attendance.

If you are taking a program now, save information from your attendance certificate to enter when the reporting tool is activated. Find out more at
Compliance - Time to Hit the Finish Line
If you are in the back of the pack... and short on credits for the reporting year that ended June 30, 2014, please look for special instructions at
At the pole position? If you have extra credits earned in the last reporting year (regardless of the provider), they will appear in the compliance record on the new system to be posted in August.
Summer is catch-up season. Get into compliance now! Fines for non-compliance will be levied under Court rule starting Oct. 1.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
