Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias Curriculum

update to the cle rules

The CLE Board issued two updates to the CLE program rules (22 NYCRR 1500.2), including the addition of a new category of CLE credit.

In addition to ethics and professionalism, skills, law practice management, and areas of professional practice, a new category was added for diversity, inclusion and elimination of bias courses. This category of credit is effective January 1, 2018. Providers of CLE will be able to classify courses as diversity, inclusion and elimination of bias courses.

In an effort to assist attorneys with compliance with the new rules, free CLE programs, including live webcasts, are scheduled in early 2018 on diversity, inclusion and elimination of bias topics for NYSBA members. NYSBA members who pre-register will be also be able to download programs online and view them on demand.

We will be designing additional programs on diversity, inclusion and implicit bias throughout the year and welcome your input. If you have course proposals and speaker suggestions for programs that incorporate diversity, inclusion and the elimination of bias topics please email them to NYSBA CLE Director, Katherine Suchocki.
