Accredited Provider News

Updated October 27, 2014


Welcome to the Accredited Provider news page. The information on this page is specifically directed only to those who have been granted New York State CLE Accredited Provider status.

  • Changes to Approved Jurisdiction list and policy [effective December 6, 2013]: The New York Approved Jurisdiction list and policy have been revised to include 17 additional jurisdictions. The revised section 6 (redlined version) of the Regulations sets forth new procedures for claiming credit under New York’s Approved Jurisdiction policy. Section 8 of the Regulations has also been revised. Under the revised relevant subsections (redlined versions) of section 8, out-of-state nontraditional-format CLE programs that have been accredited by a New York Approved Jurisdiction are no longer eligible for accreditation by the New York State CLE Board. Furthermore, these programs will no longer count towards the three-year, eight-program history required for Accredited Provider status eligibility, nor towards the eligibility requirement for renewal of Accredited Provider status.
  • Changes to Program Rules and Regulations: The New York State CLE Board Regulations and Guidelines and the CLE Program Rules have been revised to reflect changes in pro bono CLE credit limits and calculation, and to include guidelines for the award of pro bono CLE credit for participation in the Attorney Emeritus Program. The revised sections 1500.22(j) (redlined version) of the Program Rules and 3(D)(11) (redlined version) of the Regulations and Guidelines provide for an increase in the number of pro bono CLE credits that may be earned and a more favorable ratio for the calculation of pro bono CLE credit. A new section 3(D)(12) in the Regulations and Guidelines relates to the award of pro bono CLE credit for legal services provided under the Attorney Emeritus Program.
  • Faculty Attorney Requirement: FAQs regarding the requirement that the faculty of every accredited program include at least one attorney in good standing may be found at Faculty Attorney FAQs.
