General Requirements
• You must complete 12 hours of NLT instruction by the end of your first biennial reporting period. Your biennial reporting period is based on your last name. An attorney whose last name begins with a letter A through L must complete his or her educational hours by the end of each odd-numbered year and an attorney whose last name begins with a letter M through Z must complete his or her educational hours by the end of each even-numbered year.
• If you were admitted to the practice of law or initially registered for corporate status in the second year of your first biennial reporting period, you must complete your NLT requirements by the end of the next biennial reporting period.

For example:
• If you were admitted to the practice of law or initially registered for corporate status in 2013, and your last name begins with a letter A through L, you must complete your NLT educational hours by December 31, 2015.
