Continuing Legal Education Requirements
The New Mexico Supreme Court believes it is of primary importance to the members of the New Mexico State Bar and to the public that attorneys continue their legal education throughout the period of their active practice of law. Accordingly, every active licensed member of the State Bar must complete twelve hours of continuing legal education during each calendar year; 10 hours of general credits and two hours of ethics or professionalism credit. Failure to do so may result in late fees and the attorney’s administrative suspension. See Rule 18-301 NMRA.
