BLS Sponsored CLE Program
Brooklyn Law School will be presenting PLI’s Bridge-the-Gap I program on January 9-11, 2015 in the Jerome Prince Moot Court Room at the Law School. This program will enable you to satisfy all 16 hours of your annual requirement for Mandatory Continuing Legal Education for Newly Admitted Attorneys in the State of New York.
The fee to attend would normally be upwards of $500, but the Law School will be offering it for $65. That is less than $5 per credit.
Please note, this program is open to BLS graduates only.
Additional information and online registration will be available soon. Please contact Andrea Polci
, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations, with any questions.
: Even if you DID NOT pass the 2014 New York State Bar Examination, you may still take this program and carry your credits over until the date of your admission.
-I completed the Bridge the Gap I program last winter. Am I eligible to participate in this program and receive the 16 transitional credits again?
No, the NYSBA prohibits attorneys from repeating the same CLE programs, even if the topics are different.
-Is this program only for Brooklyn Law School graduates? Can I bring a co-worker or a friend that graduated from another law school?
Because the Law School subsidizes the program, Bridge the Gap is only available for Brooklyn Law School graduates. PLI offers similar programs for the general public. Please visit the PLI website
for more information on programs for the public.
