Do attorneys get additional credit for teaching?

Question and Answer

Do attorneys get additional credit for teaching?

Once per compliance period, attorneys who present an approved course are entitled to claim double credit for the amount of time personally spent presenting/as a panelist. If the attorney presenter attends the rest of the course, he/she can claim hour-for-hour credit for attendance at those portions of the course. Attorneys are entitled to the additional presenting credit once per compliance period. Future presentations of the same course will be awarded attendance credit hours only. Attorneys teaching/presenting a course that is accredited in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction that allows for more credit for teaching/presenting than offered in NJ can only use the NJ calculation for teaching credit towards compliance in NJ.

Attorneys who are involved in New Jersey approved moot court or mock trial activities are able to claim up to six credits per compliance period for such activities. The credit is for the actual moot court or mock trial presentations and not for any additional coaching sessions. To obtain credit, the attorney must have the appropriate Certificate of Attendance.
