Nevada CLE Affirmation Requirement
The State Bar of Nevada has added a new requirement to its yearly Continuing Legal Education for attorneys. Specifically, each active attorney member licensed in Nevada will be required to submit an “Affirmation of Attendance and Compliance with Mandatory CLE Requirements,” which must be submitted at the Nevada CLE Board’s website.
Regulation 11 of the CLE Board’s rules provides that this must be done by December 31st of each year. Regulation 11 also requires attorneys to maintain records of attendance of each CLE for three years in order to verify attendance, as the attorney can be subject to a random audit pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 214. (See Reg. 13). Records should be comprised of “certificates of attendance, program outlines, agendas, cancelled checks, receipts, travel vouchers, or other records to verify compliance.” Reg. 11.
As of the date of this post, the Nevada CLE Board’s website has been updated for attorneys to post the Affirmation form. The Nevada CLE Board website reports as follows:
“GREAT NEWS: The Attorney Affirmation of Attendance is now online live through your MyNVCLE account. You will notice the summary page has been redesigned for this new CLE requirement.
