New Hampshire Amends MCLE Regulations


New Hampshire recently made some changes to Supreme Court Rule 53 and the New Hampshire MCLE (minimum continuing legal education) requirement. Most notable, like the CLE system in Arizona, the state of New Hampshire will no longer be certifying CLE courses or providers. New Hampshire attorneys must now review the NH MCLE Regulations and self-determine if a CLE program is eligible for NHMCLE credit.

New Hampshire CLE Compliance & Reporting Requirements

  • Reporting Cycle: Annual
  • Compliance Deadline: June 30
  • Reporting Deadline: June 30

In addition, New Hampshire Bar Association members must now self-report their CLE compliance using an online tool that will soon be available on the New Hampshire Bar Association website.[1] This new member-centered CLE reporting system is being implemented as part of the New Hampshire Bar’s administration of NH Supreme Court Rule 53. For more information on the rule please click here: NH CLE.

For continuing education programs taken on July 1 or after: New Hampshire attorneys will self-determine if a program is eligible for NHMCLE credit and will report eligible activity using an online tool available soon.

While the New Hampshire MCLE Board does not approve or accredit CLE providers or CLE programs, many providers and sponsors routinely meet the standards of the New Hampshire MCLE Regulations. Attorney Credits is an Approved Provider of Continuing Legal Education in a number of jurisdictions across the country – including California, New York, New Jersey and Texas – and thousands of attorneys across the country have completed tens of thousands of CLE courses through our CLE website. In order to assist New Hampshire attorneys with their MCLE compliance Attorney Credits now offers CLE courses for New Hampshire attorneys: NH CLE.
