Accreditation and CLE Rules for New Jersey
The National Academy of Continuing Legal Education is a New Jersey Accredited CLE Provider.
New Jersey attorneys are required to take 24 credit hours every 2 years including 5 credit hours of Ethics and Professionalism, with a minimum of 2 credits of Diversity, Inclusion, and Elimination of Bias.
New Jersey attorneys can earn all 24 CLE credit hours with us including 5 credit hours of Ethics and Professionalism with a minimum of 2 credit hours of Diversity, Inclusion, and Elimination of Bias using our DVDs, Audio CDs, USB Stick, Online, iOS/Android App, and Live Webinar courses.
*CLE Rule Update: The New Jersey CLE Board has revoked the Covid exception and reinstated the Live CLE requirement in NJ effective 1/1/2024. Additionally, NJ has amended the CLE Regulations with BCLE Reg. 103:1(n) and expanded the definition of Live Instruction. Our Live Interactive webinars meet this definition of Live CLE in NJ. Therefore all NJ attorneys can satisfy their entire requirement with our DVDs, Audio CDs, USB Stick, Online, iOS/Android App, and Live Webinar courses.
Live Exemption: NJ rule 201:8(a) states that attorneys who reside in, work in, and are licensed in a mandatory CLE jurisdiction that does not require Live CLE are also exempt from Live CLE for NJ. These attorneys can take all 24 credits of their requirement with on-demand courses.
