The LYC Program will process all requests for MCLE credit through the New York State Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education Department, an accredited provider of CLE approved by the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board. The procedure is as follows: 

    a) County Coordinators will receive and disseminate the REQUEST FOR CLE CREDIT VERIFICATION FORM to attorneys and judges that participate in their counties. 

    b) All attorneys and judges requesting CLE credit for their participation in mock trial must complete the Verification Form and return it to their County Coordinator or other designated on-site representative.  The County Coordinators will collect all Verification Forms and send a signed copy to the Mock Trial Program Manager in Albany by mail, email or fax by June 1.

    c) CLE certificates will be generated and sent by email to the attorney or judge requesting the credit. Please note: CLE credit cannot be provided without the signed Verification Form. A valid email address must be included on the form.
