RECENTLY ADOPTED CHANGES TO FORMATS ALLOWED FOR COMPLETION OF THE NEWLY ADMITTED ATTORNEY CLE REQUIREMENT, TO BECOME EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2016

 

The New York State CLE Board has adopted the following changes, effective January 1, 2016, to the current requirement that newly admitted attorneys complete all of their CLE credits in the traditional live classroom setting or by fully interactive videoconference:

 

•     Law Practice Management and Areas of Professional Practice credit may be completed in any approved format, including nonparticipatory formats, such as on-demand audio or video, or live broadcast.

 

•     Ethics and Professionalism credit may be completed in the traditional live classroom setting; by fully interactive videoconference; or by simultaneous transmission with synchronous interactivity, such as webconference, or teleconference, where questions are allowed during the program.

 

•     There is no change in the requirement for Skills credit, which must be completed in the traditional live classroom setting or by fully interactive videoconference.

 

Thank you,
