Virtual Academic Classes

Fee: Free

Saturday morning and afternoon feature virtual academic classes taught by NYU Law’s world-renowned faculty and offer CLE credit. All CLE credit offerings are presented in partnership with the Law Alumni Association.


Virtual Class I: Ethics CLE (1 credit)

Because They Are Lawyers First and Foremost: Ethics Rules and Other Strategies to Protect the Justice Department from a Faithless President

10:00-11:00 a.m. (Eastern)

Stephen Gillers ’68 

Elihu Root Professor of Law Emeritus

NYU School of Law


The Justice Department is an executive branch agency. The Supreme Court has held that executive power — “all of it” — resides in the President. Trump agreed. He thought he had “the absolute right to do what I want" with the Justice Department. Both are wrong. Legislation can prevent some of the worst executive abuses and courts have inherent authority, congressionally endorsed, to require Department lawyers to obey the judiciary’s ethics rules. 

This prerecorded, virtual event has been approved for one New York State CLE credit in the category of Ethics & Professionalism. While the content of the event is appropriate for both newly appointed and experienced attorneys, only experienced attorneys are eligible to earn credit in this category in the prerecorded format.


Virtual Class II: Professional Practice CLE (1 credit)

State Constitutional Adjudication in Criminal Cases

11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. (Eastern)

Randy Hertz

Vice Dean, Curriculum

Fiorello LaGuardia Professor of Clinical Law

Co-Director, Clinical and Advocacy Programs

NYU School of Law


This session will examine trends in state courts’ use of their state constitutions to expand protections of criminal defendants’ rights beyond those recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court and often to reject Supreme Court rulings that cut back on previously established protections. Using Justice Brennan’s classic law review articles on the subject, the session will consider the principles that state courts have developed to guide their interpretation of state constitutional provisions.

This virtual event is approved for one New York State CLE credit in the category of Areas of Professional Practice. The credit is both transitional and non-transitional; it is appropriate for both experienced and newly admitted attorneys.
