Learn the requirements for becoming an approved CLE provider in New Jersey.
Request Course Accreditation
The Board on Continuing Legal Education requires that all providers seeking course accreditation in New Jersey and approved service provider status in New Jersey submit their applications though its on-line computer tracking system. Through this system, providers can submit course approval requests, obtain New Jersey Certificates of Attendance, and request or renew approved service provider status.
The provider CLE accreditation system has been updated to reflect the recent amendment to the ethics requirement to include diversity, inclusion and the elimination of bias (DIEB) credits. Providers are now required to provide the minutes specifically for DIEB instruction. Therefore, ethics minutes are now divided into two columns, one specifically for DIEB minutes of instruction and the other for total ethics minutes including DIEB minutes. For example, a course that is 200 minutes of total instruction, 50 minutes specifically for DIEB instruction and another 50 minutes in other ethics instruction, the provider would input in the respective columns: 200 total minutes, 50 DIEB minutes, and 100 total ethics minutes.
