CLE For Newly Admitted New York Attorneys

Newly admitted attorneys in New York may complete 7 of their CLE credits with online or CD/DVD courses.

Newly admitted attorneys are required to take 16 credits each year for the first two years following their admission to the Bar. The 16 credits must consist of 3 Ethics credits, 6 Skills credits, and 7 PP (Professional Practice) and LPM (Law Professional Practice) credits.

National Academy of Continuing Legal Education is a NYS Accredited CLE Provider. The NY CLE Board maintains an Accredited Provider directory on their website. You can find us listed on the most recent directory at

Experienced NY attorneys may earn all 24 CLE credit hours from National Academy of Continuing Legal Education, including 4 credit hours of Ethics and 1 credit hour of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias. Experienced NY attorneys may carry over up to 6 excess CLE credit hours, in any category of credit, into the next biennial reporting cycle. Attorneys may complete their CLE in a variety of formats including our DVDs, Audio CDs, Online & iOS/Android App.

Update 1/1/2018: A new category of credit called “Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias” became effective January 1, 2018. Experienced attorneys who are due to re-register on or after July 1, 2018, must complete at least 1 credit hour in the new category as part of their biennial CLE requirement. This does not add to the biennial CLE requirement of 24 credit hours nor change the requirement that experienced attorneys earn at least 4 credit hours in Ethics and Professionalism. Please note: Newly Admitted Attorneys are not required to earn Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias CLE credit.

New York attorneys must report that they are CLE compliant on their biennial registration form and must retain proof of compliance for a minimum of four years. Accordingly, National Academy of CLE issues a NY CLE Certificate of Attendance for all CLE activities.

Newly admitted attorneys are required to take "transitional” courses (designed to help them develop a foundation in the essential skills to practice law) 16 credits each year for the first two years following their admission to the Bar. The 16 credits must consist of 3 Ethics credits, 6 Skills credits, and 7 Law Practice Management (LPM) or Professional Practice (PP) credits. Newly admitted attorneys must complete their CLE requirement in a format permissible for the category of credit. For more information, see

Newly admitted attorneys who have earned more than 16 transitional CLE credit hours before the first anniversary of admission to the Bar may apply up to 8 of their additional credits earned during the first year of admission towards their second-year requirement. Once the second-year requirement is complete, up to 6 additional credits may be applied towards the next reporting cycle. Ethics and Professionalism credits may not be carried over. For more information, see Carryover Credit FAQs.
