Commencing in 2022, the $40 annual CLE fee will not be charged to attorneys. This decision, made jointly by the Nevada Board of Continuing Education and the State Bar of Nevada’s Board of Governors, was made possible by an administrative docket order entered earlier this year by the Nevada Supreme Court, which consolidated and streamlined the administrative operations of the CLE Board and the State Bar.
“The Board of Governors is charged with making financial decisions to ensure the state bar can operate on a fiscally sound basis,” said State Bar President Ann Morgan. “This decision reflects the financial health of the State Bar of Nevada and is another step to fulfilling our mission to serve our members and to regulate the legal profession.”
The State Bar of Nevada operates on annual license fees, which have not increased in the past 16 years, and revenue collected through services such as publications, the Lawyer Referral Service, and continuing education programs.
