LEGAL ONE Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits

LEGAL ONE (Law, Ethics and Governance for All Leaders, including an Overview of New and Emerging Issues) , an approved provider of the New Jersey Board on Continuing Legal Education, offers a broad array of program offerings that are eligible for New Jersey Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. LEGAL ONE’s program offerings not only can satisfy your attorney professional development needs, but also assist you in better serving your New Jersey education community clients. In order to receive NJ CLE credits from the program offerings below, attorneys must comply with LEGAL ONE’s Attorney Attendance Verification procedures as set forth here. Compliance includes completing an Attorney Attendance Verification Form, which can be accessed here. A sample completed Attorney Attendance Verification form is provided here to assist attorneys in completing the form. 

If you have a financial hardship, LEGAL ONE has a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Scholarship Financial Hardship policy that may be able to help. The process by which you can request a scholarship for a LEGAL ONE Continuing Legal Education program is set forth here.

In order to receive CLE credits for any CLE eligible LEGAL ONE course, attorney participants must do the following:

  • Participants must be present and participate in the entire course.
  • Course attendance codes have been placed on select slides throughout the presentation and will be verbally identified at those select points. Participants will need to record those course attendance codes for later entry into the Attorney Attendance Verification Form.
  • The Attorney Attendance Verification Form contains spaces for up to seven (7) course attendance codes. Not every course will contain seven (7) course attendance codes, but none will contain more than seven (7).
  • Attendees must enter the course name, attendee name, date of attendance and course attendance codes into the Attorney Attendance Verification Form.
  • The Attorney Attendance Verification Form includes a certification by the attorney attendee that the attorney attended and completed the course and is entitled to the CLE credits listed for the program.
  • The completed Attorney Attendance Verification Form should be scanned and emailed to legalone@njpsa.org for processing.
  • If the Attorney Attendance Verification Form has been properly completed, LEGAL ONE will send the attorney attendee the NJ CLE Certificate of Attendance for the course. The attorney attendee will be directed to sign the form on the appropriate certification line, scan it and send a signed copy back to LEGAL ONE, keeping a signed copy for the attorney attendee’s records.
