The CLE Institute of the New York County Lawyers' Association is approved for Accredited Service Provider Status in New Jersey by the Board of Continuing Legal Education.
All lawyers holding a license to practice law in New Jersey are required to participate in mandatory continuing legal education programs, effective January 1, 2010. Attorneys must complete 24 credit hours every two years, including 4 ethics credits. Up to 12 of those credits may be by self-study (audio, video, online, computer-based).
Newly admitted attorneys admitted in 2009 and thereafter must take 15 of the 24 credit hours in five of the following nine subject areas: NJ basic estate administration; NJ basic estate planning; NJ civil or criminal trial preparation; NJ family law Practice; NJ real estate closing procedures; NJ trust and business accounting; NJ landlord/tenant practice; NJ municipal court practice and NJ law office management.
Many of the live CLE programs at NYCLA's CLE Institute qualify for CLE credit in New Jersey and are so designated on this website. Attendees of these programs may request MCLE credit for either, or both, states. Attendees receiving New Jersey credit must sign their certificate of attendance at the end of the program.
When registering for a live program please indicate on the "customer instructions/comments" section of the online order form that you want New Jersey credit.
