Nevada Continuing Legal Education Requirements

13 hours per year: in the year in which the attorney is subject to the requirement in the area of substance abuse, addictive disorders and/or mental health issues that impair professional competence, the attorney shall complete:

  • Ten (10) hours of general continuing legal education
  • Two (2) hours of ethics and professional conduct
  • One (1) hour in the area of substance abuse, addictive disorders and/or mental health

The annual reporting date is December 31st.

Please note: Excess ethics hours can be applied toward general CLE credit requirements, however excess general hours cannot be applied toward the 2 hour ethics requirement. Additionally, excess credits in abuse, addictive disorders and/or mental health may be carried forward to the next reporting cycle.

Rule Amendment Notice

Effective January 1, 2018, the Nevada Supreme Court amended Supreme Court Rule 210 regarding mandatory continuing legal education via ADKT 0478.  The order makes it mandatory for all active Nevada attorneys to take a minimum of one CLE hour annually on substance abuse, addictive disorders and or mental health issues.

Look for CLE offerings from the State Bar of Nevada with the A.A.MH. code to fulfill this requirement.
