Awarding NY CLE for Student Organization Events at NYU School of Law

If you are organizing an event at NYU which has substantive legal content and you want to have practicing attorneys attend, you might be able to offer Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. This will entice attorneys to attend, as they are required to earn CLE credits and report their compliance to the state every two years.

NYU School of Law is an accredited provider of New York CLE. The graduate tax office is authorized to review events to see if CLE may be granted. The law school staff who the NY CLE board recognizes as contacts are John Stephens and Nick Robertson. You can send your request to Nick Robertson, who will consult with John Stephens.

Nick can be reached at: or at (212) 992-8965.

We ask event sponsors to fill out a checklist of items, and get us all documents relating to an event 6-8 weeks ahead of the event, and not to send out any advertisements for the event which mention CLE until we have approved it.

All student organizations must review the CLE Application Requirements and complete the CLE Application Checklist. For questions regarding the CLE application process, please email Nick Robertson.
