Proposal – 24 CLE Credits Required for N.J. Attys Every 2 years : Verniero Committee

Yesterday, the Supreme Court’s Ad Hoc Committee on Continuing Legal Education (CLE), chaired by former Associate Justice Peter G. Verniero, made public its draft report to the Supreme Court. The Committee concluded that the Supreme Court should make CLE mandatory for most New Jersey attorneys and provided 19 recommendations for the Court to consider in implementing this requirement. Among the recommendations is that 24 credit hours be required for virtually all N.J. attorneys on a two-year cycle.

The Supreme Court will accept written comments submitted by Sept. 15. Comments should be sent to Clerk of the Supreme Court, Richard J. Hughes Justice Complex, P.O. Box 970, Trenton, NJ, 08625-0970. Comments also may be submitted via e-mail to Comments.Mailbox@judiciary.state.nj.us.
