As part of City Bar membership, recent law graduates (not yet admitted) and newly admitted lawyers (admitted for the first time in any state or country 2019 - 2021) can attend Bridge-the-Gap at no extra charge. Additionally, members that are recent law graduates and newly admitted attorneys may also attend all City Bar CLE programs that are four hours or less - live program, live webcast, and on-demand. You can find more information on City Bar membership here.
Earn your annual CLE credits while obtaining invaluable knowledge in a variety of practice areas. Our New York Bridge-the-Gap programs fulfill a full year’s credit requirements for those who are newly admitted, while providing essential information and credits for more experienced attorneys. Our New Jersey Bridge-the-Gap will satisfy the mandatory 15 credits and more.
The New York City Bar typically offers Bridge-the-Gap programming five times a year (three New York Bridge-the-Gap programs and two specifically geared to New Jersey law).
