Active members of the State Bar of Nevada must complete 13 credit hours of CLE each year (10 general, 2 ethics, 1 substance abuse/addiction/mental health), unless exempt under Supreme Court Rule 214.


What is the requirement for newly admitted attorneys?

Newly admitted attorneys are exempt from the CLE credit hour requirement for the remainder of the calendar year in which they are admitted, and for the next full calendar year. Instead of earning CLE credits, a newly admitted attorney must enroll in the Transitioning into Practice (TIP) program.

Attorneys who are certified to practice under Supreme Court Rule 49.1 must comply with CLE Requirements beginning on their date of certification.


How are CLE credits reported?

Accredited Legal Education Providers who seek credit approval for courses offered in Nevada must report program attendance and course credits within 30 days.

You may self-report attendance for credits obtained through a non-accredited provider. You may also report credits received from an accredited provider but which have not yet been reported.

You may carry forward a maximum of twenty (20) general credits, four (4) ethics credits, and two (2) substance abuse credits that are in excess of the annual requirement. Extra ethics and substance abuse credits may be used to satisfy the general credit requirement. However, extra substance abuse credits cannot be used to satisfy the ethics requirement.


May I apply for an exemption from CLE credit hour or fee requirements based on hardship?

You may apply for a hardship exemption from CLE credit hour requirements or annual fee requirements by completing this form. Such application must be made prior to obtaining an exemption unless you are unable to apply in advance by reason of the hardship itself.
