The Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education (CLE Board) is transitioning to a new business model which will shift the fees associated with continuing legal education seminars to providers (i.e., those who profit from putting on CLE seminars). The goal is to ultimately eliminate the $40.00 annual fee currently in place. In addition, the Nevada Board of CLE is transitioning to electronic, paperless communication, with a user friendly website already in place.
