Attention Newly Admitted Attorneys: The Albany and Buffalo video conferences are approved for MCLE credit in New York!
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND THIS PROGRAM
All attorneys are eligible to attend this program! Newly admitted attorneys can satisfy all of their annual MCLE requirements by attending this two-day program which is ideal for “bridging the gap” between law school and the realities of practicing law in New York State. Experienced attorneys who have an interest in other areas of practice can also attend and benefit from this program by learning practical information from skilled and experienced practitioners!
Program faculty will speak from the New York City location and will be broadcast live to other locations in an interactive video conference format, allowing “real time” interaction between all locations. This program is approved for MCLE credit for newly admitted attorneys in all locations, regardless of format.
This two-day program will cover different topics in various areas of practice on each day and offers a total of 16.0 MCLE credits: 1.5 in ethics, 3.0 credits in skills, and 3.5 in areas of professional practice each day.
Please Note: Course materials for this program are being distributed exclusively in electronic form. Prior to the program date, all registrants will receive an email message containing a link to the complete course materials. These files are provided in a searchable PDF format and can be saved to your computer and, if you choose to do so, printed at your convenience. If you wish, once you have downloaded the PDF file to your computer, you can transfer the files to your laptop computer or tablet. Online materials are updated periodically to reflect late submissions from program faculty.

Any materials that were not submitted in time to be loaded onto the thumb drive will be available for you to access at the materials website link.
