Brooklyn Law School will be presenting PLI’s Bridge-the-Gap I program for the Classes of 2012 & 2013 on January 10-12, 2014 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.

To meet the needs of Sabbath observers, PLI has agreed to reserve up to 20 seats in another PLI “Bridge the Gap I” program at the organization’s Manhattan office. To register for this program, please check the appropriate box on the online form. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. PLI will contact you directly to schedule your attendance. You may also elect to attend the Sunday section on January 12 at Brooklyn Law School so that you only have to make up 10 hours at a later date. Please contact Andrea Polci if you would like to attend on Sunday.
-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 program for the public.
-I graduated in 2011, 2010, or 2009. Can I attend Bridge the Gap I? If you haven't already attended a Bridge the Gap I program you may be put on the wait list. Please contact Andrea Polci to be added to the wait list. DO NOT RSVP online until you have been contacted by BLS. We will begin registration from the wait list on January 2, 2014.
