What is reciprocity?

Question and Answer

What is reciprocity?

New Jersey attorneys who are satisfying the CLE requirement of another mandatory CLE state or who take courses approved in another mandatory CLE state will receive 1:1 credit for courses approved in that jurisdiction through reciprocity. However, attorneys should be aware that there are differences in requirements from state to state. Attorneys relying on reciprocity must ensure that they are also meeting the requirements of New Jersey's program. For example, New Jersey requires that four credits be taken in courses related to ethics, professional responsibility and/or professionalism. In addition, half of the required credits must be earned from attendance at live courses with the instructor physically in the same room as the participants. A course taken that has not been approved in a mandatory CLE jurisdiction will not have the benefit of reciprocity. BCLE Reg. 201:4
