    The New York State MCLE Board requirement for Attorneys in practice beyond the first two years after admission to the Bar is 24 credit hours per biennial registration cycle, with four hours of these credit hours earned in the area of ethics and professionalism. This program will satisfy up to 17 MCLE credit hours including up to 2.0 hours in ethics and/or up to 15 hours in the general category. The ethics portion of this program will qualify for MCLE credit for newly admitted attorneys; however, the balance of the program will not qualify since it is not a basic practical skills program.
