New Jersey State Bar Association - The voluntary Bar Association of New Jersey, serving members since 1899.

Continuing Legal Education

Keeping abreast of updates and trends in the law is critical to the success of all attorneys, and the New Jersey State Bar Association is dedicated to providing opportunities for members and the entire legal community. 

The Association is uniquely suited to help lawyers and judges licensed in New Jersey to meet their mandatory continuing legal education requirements. 

Since January 1, 2010, all lawyers holding a license to practice law in the State of New Jersey, whether plenary or limited, are required to participate in the mandatory continuing legal education program set forth in Rule 1:42, entitled “Continuing Legal Education.” It requires all attorneys who are licensed to practice in the State to take 24 hours of continuing legal education every two years, including at least four hours on topics related to ethics and/or professionalism.  

The program is mandatory for attorneys, judges, in-house corporate counsel and attorneys who work for government entities.
