Accreditation and CLE Rules for New York
Courses purchased through UnitedCLE.com are provided and fully accredited by The National Academy of Continuing Legal Education, an Accredited NYS CLE Provider.
The NY CLE Board maintains an Accredited Provider directory on their website. You can find National Academy of Continuing
Legal Education listed on the most recent directory at http://www.nycourts.gov/attorneys/cle/aplist.pdf.
Experienced NY are required to take 24 credit hours every 2 years including 4 credit hours of Ethics and 1 credit hour of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.
NY attorneys can earn all 24 CLE credit hours with us using our Online & iOS/Android App courses.
*COVID-19 Update: In response to concerns related to the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus the NYS CLE Board has temporarily suspended the live in-person requirement for Newly Admitted attorneys. You now have until 6/30/2023 to earn both your Skills and Ethics credits through our livestream webinars. You can see the official notice about the temporary live requirement exception here.
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 please click here.
Newly admitted attorneys can satisfy all 16 credit hours with us using our on-demand PP & LPM courses and our Live Webinar Skills and Ethics courses.
Beginning on July 1, 2023, both experienced and newly admitted attorneys will need to comply with the 1-credit requirement in the Cybersecurity, Privacy and Data Protection category of CLE credit.
Experienced attorneys due to re-register on or after July 1, 2023 (birthday is on or after July 1st) must complete at least 1 CLE credit hour in Cybersecurity, Privacy and Data Protection as part of their biennial CLE requirement.
Newly admitted attorneys whose admission to the New York Bar is on or after July 1, 2023 must complete at least 1 CLE credit hour in Cybersecurity, Privacy and Data Protection as part of their newly admitted CLE requirement.
Providers may start issuing New York CLE credit in Cybersecurity, Privacy and Data Protection to attorneys who complete courses in this new category on or after January 1, 2023.
Please note, this new CLE category will not change the total amount of credits required in your CLE period.
Experienced NY attorneys are required to complete their requirement every 2 years by their birthday with a 30 day automatic grace period. Attorneys admitted to practice in even years are due on even years and attorneys admitted in odd years are due in odd years.
Newly admitted attorneys must complete each of their two 16 credit requirements by the first and second anniversaries of admission respectively.
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. National Academy of CLE issues a NY CLE Certificate of Attendance for all CLE activities as proof of compliance and we store the certificate in your CLE Account indefinitely.
