On Line Resource Center Training Videos and Continuing Legal Education Credits

Empire Justice Center and Western New York Law Center are pleased to provide attorneys with the opportunity to receive continuing legal education credits by watching video recordings of training programs.  Please keep the following in mind:

Training presentations and accompanying materials are most relevant and useful on the date the recording took place. The passage of time -- undoubtedly accompanied by changes in laws and regulations and court decisions -- may render portions of the training content inaccurate and overall, less useful.

Training programs viewed within two years of its recording are eligible for CLE credit unless noted otherwise.

Because many training programs contain relevant background information and age gracefully, they will be maintained on the website indefinitely.  However, training recordings that are more than two years old may not be eligible for credit if, in the judgment of the training department, the content is no longer relevant and current. 

Please contact the training department if you are uncertain whether a particular recording may still be viewed for CLE credit.

Registration is required to view training videos.  Click on the training video you wish to see, complete the registration form and a link to the training video will be sent to you by email.
