You will receive a blue evaluation form with your handouts.  This form must be completed and returned to the Bar Representative at the end of the seminar.  These evaluations are summarized and a report based on your evaluations and suggestions are given to the CLE Committee for review and  discussion.  We are also required by the New York State CLE Board to provide annual summaries of these evaluations in order to continue as an Accredited Provider of CLE programs.  Your CLE Certificate will not be issued unless the evaluation form is received.  

You will receive your CLE Certificate containing the name of the seminar, the date and CLE credit attained, at the end of the seminar.  

It is the responsibility of each attorney to maintain records of CLE seminars to certify compliance as part of their biennial registration.
