Welcome to the New Hampshire Minimum Continuing Legal Education Attorney Reporting Tool (ART)!
The ‘Attorney Reporting Tool’ or ‘ART’ was designed for New Hampshire lawyers to use to comply with NH Supreme Court Rule 53-NHMCLE.
Deadline for NHMCLE Compliance is July 1, 2016 (NHMCLE 2015-2016 reporting year).
Meet credit minimums and file the Affidavit of Compliance by midnight, July 31, 2016. Late fees will be assessed on August 1, 2016 and September 1, 2016.
Prior ART History
The “My Record” page on ART, www.nhmcle.org, has a feature: a “Reporting Year Display Box” near the member’s name. My Record page now opens to the current 2015-2016 reporting year (July 1, 2015 –June 30, 2016). To view the prior reporting year, go to the “reporting year display box” and select 2014-2015.
NHMCLE Tip: Navigating ART
Not sure whether you have completed all the necessary credits for the NHMCLE reporting year that ended June 30? The Attorney Reporting Tool (ART) shows existing credit shortages in two locations.
First, the bottom section of the 2015-2016 My Record page has a "Totals" section that shows accrued minutes in each requirement category. Second, the ART toolbar contains an "Affidavit" tab. If shortages exist, that tab lists the shortages for each category. If minimums are met, the Affidavit of Compliance will appear. Members can complete, attest and submit the online Affidavit.
Complete a qualified activity (an online program or webcast, for example) and report it on ART. Once the minimum number of credit minutes has been reported for the July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 reporting year, the 2015-2016 My Record page will, on June 1, 2016, show an active "File Affidavit" button. Follow the steps from there to file the online Affidavit of Compliance. To avoid late fees, the affidavit must be filed and the payment must be processed and cleared before midnight July 31, 2016.
