Drafting Effective Wills and Trusts and Estate Planning Essentials are Continuing Legal Education (CLE) publications. CLEs are written by lawyers, for lawyers. Lawyers in New Hampshire are required to continue their professional education even after admission to the New Hampshire bar. Lawyers earn CLE credits by taking legal training workshops taught by other attorneys and experts in their areas of law. CLE publications are the manuals that accompany those workshops. CLE publications often have sample clauses, forms, or redacted court documents and they can contain very practical advice and information not found on more scholarly treatises. Generally, New Hampshire CLE publications do not have indexes but they do have very detailed tables of contents. The quality of the print publications can vary widely: some are just reprints of PowerPoint slides and others are very complete, researched essays.
The minimum requirements for CLE credits in New Hampshire are set by Supreme Court Rule 53.
