16-Hour Bridge-the-Gap:
Practical Skills, Ethics & More… (Day One Only)

Thursday, July 11, 2019 | 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

  • Earn all of your annual CLE credits while obtaining invaluable knowledge in a variety of areas. Our 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. This program is particularly distinct in that one day will allow attendees to fulfill all required ethics and skills credits. Attendance on both days will provide the total professional practice required of all newly admitted attorneys. A skilled faculty will guide you through the day-to-day practice of law and cover topics of interest to all attorneys, including legal ethics. Each Bridge-the-Gap program contains updated content and will provide CLE credit to all attendees, even if they attended in the past.

    In addition to the live program, each day of this Bridge-the-Gap program will be available as a webcast.  Experienced attorneys may therefore choose to attend live or by webcast. Newly admitted attorneys must attend the live program in order to receive skills credits; therefore newly admitted attorneys should register to attend live. For further information on the CLE rules and requirements for newly admitted attorneys, please visit http://www.nycourts.gov/Attorneys/CLE/

    Save by registering for both days!

    Members who are Recent Law Graduates or Newly Admitted Lawyers (admitted for the first time in any state or country 2017-2019) attend this program for free.
