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 receive and disseminate the Request for CLE Credit Verification Form 2 to attorneys and judges that participate in their counties. b) The County Coordinators will collect the Verification Form from attorneys and judges who participated in the Mock Trial Tournament during the current year and mail the original signed copy to the Mock Trial Program Manager in Albany by June 1. Once the form is received in Albany, the Mock Trial Program Manager will forward it to the CLE Department for processing. c) MCLE certificates will be generated and sent by email to the attorney or judge requesting the credit. MCLE credit cannot be provided without the signed Request for CLE Credit Verification Form. A valid email address must be included on the form. A sample of the Request for CLE Credit Verification Form follows. 1 1) The biennial reporting cycle shall be the two-year period between the dates of submission of the attorney's biennial registration statement; 2) An attorney shall comply with the requirements of this Subpart commencing from the time of the filing of the attorney's biennial attorney registration statement in the second calendar year following admission to the Bar. 2 County Coordinators will begin disseminating this new form to participating attorneys and judges during the 2016-2017 New York State Mock Trial tournament season.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
