Updating an Important CLE Notice for Newly-Admitted Attorneys


By Brendan Kennedy

Good afternoon Members,

In order to help curb the spread of the coronavirus, the New York State CLE Board is now permitting newly-admitted attorneys (admitted to the New York State Bar for two years or less) to participate in Skills CLE courses through either individual or group participation via webconference, teleconference and videoconference. The format must allow questions during the program.

Newly-admitted attorneys can receive Skills Credits for CLE programs taken as a webconference, teleconference and videoconference– if the format allows questions to be posed — now through June 30, 2021.

For a list of upcoming qualifying NYSBA CLE webinars, please visit https://nysba.org/cle-programs/cle-program-catalog. then select “Region” and tag “Virtual Participation.”
