Columbia Law School has been certified by the New York State Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Board as an Accredited Provider of CLE programs. Under New York State CLE regulations, each live non-transitional CLE program will provide credit hours that can be applied toward the Areas of Professional Practice requirement. We will update the website soon with the exact number of credit hours that can be applied.

This CLE credit is awarded only to New York attorneys for full attendance of the program in its entirety. Attorneys attending only part of the program are not eligible for partial credit for it, although they are most welcome to attend it. Attendance is determined by an attorney's sign-in and sign-out, as shown in the Conference registers. On sign-out, attorneys should also submit their completed Evaluation Form, which will be provided at the Conference. Please note the NYS Certificates of Attendance will be sent to the email address as it appears in the register unless otherwise noted there.
