Approved Jurisdiction Policy - Number of credits


New York CLE credit is based on a 50-minute hour and must be in .5-hour increments. If the credit issued is based on a 60-minute hour, the attorney should multiply the number of credits issued by 60 and then refer to the credit calculation chart to determine the equivalent New York credit. If the credit issued is based on a 50-minute hour and is not in a .5-credit increment, round down to the next .5 credit. (For example, if issued 2.4 credits based on a 50-minute hour, the attorney may count only 2.0 credits towards the New York CLE requirement.)
