Last year, the New York State Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Board created a new category of CLE Credit -- Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias (Diversity) -- starting on January 1, 2018 (see NYC Bar link).
Experienced attorneys who are due to re-register on or after July 1, 2018 must complete at least one (1) credit hour in Diversity. With this change, experienced attorneys must still complete 24 credit hours every two years, but now the breakdown will be:
19 hours of General
4 hours of Ethics
1 hour of Diversity
See 22 NYC RR 1500.2(c)-(g) (see link 1, link 2); 22 NYC RR 1500.22 (see link 1, link 2).
