9 What are Teaching Credits? Teaching credits are additional non-live credits awarded in recognition of presentation and material preparation time. When teaching credit is claimed, one may not also claim publication credit for material preparation. It is the policy of the NHMCLE Board not to allow credit for teaching if the audience was primarily composed of non-lawyers. However, if written materials submitted to the Committee demonstrate that the presentation was substantially equivalent to a presentation before a group of lawyers, teaching credit may be awarded. Contact the NHMCLE Office at for more information. However, credit will not be awarded for teaching undergraduate college or law school courses. Credit may be awarded for teaching graduate-level college courses and graduate-level law school courses that otherwise satisfy the requirements of Rule How do I claim NHMCLE credit for courses, or parts of courses, I teach? If this is the first time you have claimed credit for participating as faculty for any part of this course in this reporting period 1 click the New Entry tab in the NHMCLE ttorney Reporting Tool, and in addition to other required information : 1) Check teaching box in setting area 2) Where indicated, enter actual number of Ethics/Professionalism minutes TTENDED S STUDENT (i.e. portions of program pertaining to Ethics/Professionalism you attended but did not teach) 3) Where indicated, enter actual number of General/non-Ethics minutes TTENDED S STUDENT (i.e. General/non-Ethics portions of a program you attended but did not teach) 4) Where indicated, enter actual number of Ethics/Professionalism minutes TUGHT 2 by you (system will provide a place for this if teaching box has been checked - see Step 1) 5) Where indicated, enter actual number of General/non-Ethics minutes TUGHT 2 by you (system will provide a place for this if teaching box has been checked - see Step 1) By following Steps 1-5, the on-line CLE ctivity Reporting Tool will award 1x Live credit minutes for portions of the program SPENT S FCULTY MEMBER plus 2x non-live credit minutes for time an individual faculty member spent actually teaching lawyers at the program. 1 Lawyers who teach the same course more than once in a reporting period may claim teaching credit only for the first presentation. Subsequent presentations of the same course content will be granted one credit for each hour of actual classroom instruction without the teaching credit multiplier. 2 Teaching participation of 30 minutes or less shall be credited as one half hour teaching hour. Teaching participation from over 30 minutes and up to 60 minutes shall be credited as a full teaching hour. Where teaching is done in tandem or by panel the teaching credit should be divided equally or in proportion to each teachers speaking time, whichever is appropriate.

10 What are Publication Credits? Publication Credits are granted to principal authors of books, law review and journal articles and similar publications treating legal or law-related topics in a scholarly or practical manner and directed primarily to an audience of lawyers, judges and legal assistants. Such credit shall be granted in the reporting year in which publication first occurs, at the rate of one (1) hour of NHMCLE credit for each one thousand five hundred (1,500) words published. Publication Credits are considered non-live credit. Lawyers desiring NHMCLE credit for such publications shall submit a copy of the same to the NHMCLE Board, and shall retain a copy for a minimum of two (2) years after the close of the reporting year in question. uthorship of articles for general circulation, newspapers or magazines directed to a non-lawyer audience does not qualify for NHMCLE author credit under this Rule, nor does the authorship of CLE course materials qualify for credit. Presentation of a work of an appropriately scholarly character at a professional conference, symposium or similar activity will ordinarily qualify as publication for the purposes of Rule 53.3(G) and this regulation provided that the author may not also claim teaching or attendance credit for such presentation, even if the activity would otherwise ordinarily qualify for such credit. In the case of jointly authored publications the time/credit should be divided between or among the joint authors to reflect the proportional effort devoted to the research and writing of the publication. How do I claim NHMCLE credit for Publications? Review the information and application provided in the Publication Credit pplication at Complete and submit the Publication Credit pplication the NHMCLE Office at nhmcle2nhbar.org containing the following : o Name of article publisher o Date of publication o Title of publication o Electronic copy of article and information about program if a presentation was made What are Independent Learning Projects? NHMCLE credit may be claimed for certain independent learning initiatives that meet the applicable provisions of SC Rule 53 and have been pre-approved by the NHMCLE Board. Contact the NHMCLE Office for further information. I am admitted in Vermont and/or Maine and applying to the Supreme Court for dmission on Motion in New Hampshire. re there any special CLE requirements? Yes. Supreme Court Rule 42 XI (b) and (c) require applicants to have completed at least fifteen (15) hours of continuing legal education on New Hampshire practice and procedure in courses approved [as such] by the NHMCLE

11 Board within one year immediately preceding the date upon which the motion is filed and be certified by the NHMCLE Board as satisfying this requirement (This requirement is in addition to and separate from the Practical Skills Course requirement (SC Rule 42 XIII (a)) that must be completed within the two years immediately following admission.) Where can I obtain CLE courses meeting the New Hampshire practice and procedure requirements of SC Rule 42 XI (b) and (c)? The New Hampshire Bar ssociation s CLE Program identified the New Hampshire practice and procedure programs with an NHP logo. number of other NH continuing legal education providers offer programs that will focus on NH practice. If non-nhb programs are taken for the purpose of SC Rule 42 XI (b) and (c), documentation must be submitted with the dmission on Motion Certificate of Completion of Continuing Legal Education Prior to Motion (supplied by the Supreme Court as part of the admission on motion process) demonstrating that the programs specifically pertained to NH practice and procedure. NHMCLE, NHB-CLE What is the difference between NHMCLE Rule requirements and the NH Bar ssociation s Continuing Legal Education Program? The short answer is that NHMCLE is the rule and the compliance function for the annual minimum continuing legal education requirement set forth by NH Supreme Court Rule 53, and the New Hampshire Bar ssociation s Continuing Legal Education Program is one provider of CLE. Both are housed at the NH Bar Center, and there is some staff and data overlap, but they are separate functions. Rule 53 NHMCLE is a NH Supreme Court rule requiring all NH attorneys to obtain a minimum number of qualifying continuing education minutes (credits) each year The NH Bar ssociation s Continuing Legal Education (NHB-CLE) Program is a service of the NH Bar ssociation, and is one of a number of continuing legal education providers in New Hampshire s a unified bar association, to assist the Supreme Court with effective and efficient application of Supreme Court Rule 53, administration of the NHMCLE program is based at the Bar Center and overseen by the court-appointed New Hampshire Minimum Continuing Legal Education Board The NH Bar ssociation and the NHMCLE dministrative Office have developed the on-line tool for the use of ssociation members in reporting and tracking continuing legal education activity; the software interfaces with the ssociation database and therefore NH Bar ssociation continuing legal education offerings are automatically entered in the NHMCLE ttorney Reporting Tool. The NHMCLE program of the New Hampshire Supreme Court should not be confused with the New Hampshire Bar ssociation's Continuing Legal Education (NHB-CLE) program How does the Practical Skills Course Requirement of Supreme Court Rule 42 relate to NHMCLE? Supreme Court Rule 42 XIII (a) requires that, within two years of admission to practice law in NH, a practical skills course presented by the New Hampshire Bar ssociation must be attended. Credits earned may be applied to the NHMCLE requirement.
