The LYC Program will process all requests for MCLE credit through the New York State Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education Department, an accredited provider of CLE approved by the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board. The procedure is as follows: 

     a) County Coordinators receive and disseminate the REQUEST FOR CLE CREDIT VERIFICATION FORM to attorneys and judges that participate in their counties. 

     b) The County Coordinators will collect the Verification Form from attorneys and judges who participated in the Mock Trial Tournament during the current year and mail the original signed copy to the Mock Trial Program Manager in Albany by June 1. Once the form is received in Albany, the Mock Trial Program Manager will forward it to the CLE Department for processing. 

     c) MCLE certificates will be generated and sent by email to the attorney or judge requesting the credit. MCLE credit cannot be provided without the signed REQUEST FOR CLE CREDIT VERIFICATION FORM. A valid email address must be included on the form.
