Paralegal Division

CLE Programs

  It is the member’s responsibility to obtain a certificate of attendance for any seminar attended and submit it for credit to the Division CLE Tracking Committee.  Even though you may be continually advised by the person at the registration table that your CLE credits will be reported to the NM State Bar – they are not reported to the Division.  The NM State Bar only records CLE credit for attorneys – not paralegals.  You may print the certificate of attendance from our web site and take it with you when attending seminars, or you may use the certificate of attendance provided for attorneys in the seminar materials.  If you do not obtain and submit a certificate of attendance, you will not receive CLE credit from the Division.  The sign-in sheets for luncheon seminars and any other seminars sponsored by the Division are the only seminars that will be recorded without the need to obtain and submit a certificate of attendance.
