Cross Cultural Competence for Attorneys



In a country with a multicultural nature and keeping in mind the general tendency toward globalization, cross-cultural representation is commonplace for attorneys. This two-hour ethics seminar will help attorneys understand and communicate more effectively with individuals from different cultural backgrounds.


Attendees will leave the class armed with useful tools for working with clients differing from themselves in national origin, race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status and other aspects.

2015 License Fees and Annual Disclosures


The Member Services department of the State Bar of Nevada is working hard to complete and send out the 2015 renewal packets, which will include invoices for license fees and annual disclosures. Attorneys who have opted to receive electronic links for submitting fees and disclosures will receive their links via email very soon. At this time, no renewal packets or disclosures have been sent out.  


In the very near future, the Member Services department will launch a new portal, enabling members to log in and update their addresses and contact information, and pay fees. Please note, the first time members log in to the new portal they will need to create a new username and password. The landing page for the portal will include simple, step-by-step instructions for creating these credentials.


Member Services greatly appreciates your cooperation and patience.

Medical Malpractice Attorneys Needed for Lawyer Referral Program


The State Bar of Nevada's Lawyer Referral and Information Service provides participating attorneys with pre-screened referrals from potential clients in specific areas of practice. The service costs $50 per year and generates, on average, 100 referrals per attorney annually.


The service is currently seeking attorneys to join the Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death and Products Liability experience panel. If you meet the criteria, fill out the online application, and send it along with the application fee to: State Bar of Nevada, P.O. Box 50, Las Vegas, NV 89125-0050.

Family Court Truancy Diversion Program Seeks Judges


The Eighth Judicial District Court's Family Division Truancy Diversion Program (TDP) is one of just four programs nationwide to receive a $600,000 grant from the Department of Justice. This funding will help double the number of schools benefiting from the TDP, which seeks to keep kids in school and out of court. This means volunteer judges are more desperately needed than ever.


Volunteer TDP judges are licensed attorneys who commit to a school year of weekly truancy diversion court sessions on a CCSD campus. The TDP judge promotes and supports academic achievement using a team effort and an individual student success plan. Since 2007, the TDP has expanded from six to 50 schools including elementary, middle schools and high schools. The goal of the Eighth Judicial District Court Family Division is to continue to expand until all 358 Clark County schools have a TDP program. Those interested in volunteering as TDP judges for this specialty court program should contact Judge Jennifer Elliott at (702) 455-0158.
