Effective March 20, 2014, the Nevada Supreme Court amended Supreme Court Rule 210 regarding mandatory continuing legal education via ADKT 478. The order makes it mandatory for all active Nevada attorneys to take a minimum of one CLE hour once every three years on substance abuse, addictive disorders and or mental health issues. Credit must be earned in the first year of the three-year cycle, beginning in 2014.
Look for CLE offerings from the State Bar of Nevada with the A.A.M.H. code to fulfill this requirement.
