I have a question which can't seem to get an answer from the voice at the other end of the MCLE contact telephone number. As an administrator for a NY corporate dept, we are already an approved multi-activity sponsor for NY. Since NJ offers reciprocity with NY, do I need to apply for NJprovider status too, or can NY sponsorship suffice? All our NJ based attorneys are also licensed to practice in NY; none are exclusive to NJ.

Stephen - becoming an approved NJ provider has two benefits - your programs will be listed on the NJ Courts Online web site - eventually - and NJ attorneys who are not dual-licensed in a state that has a Mandatory CLE program may take your courses for NJ credit.

Since all of your attorneys are dual-licensed in NY and all of your programs are approved in NY, then all of your attorneys may claim CLE credit for your courses.

FYI - about 75% of NJ attorneys are dual-licensed!

Patty: Please see today's post (4/19) about the reciprocity rule. While all of Stephen's attorneys may claim credit as they are dual-licensed, they would also be able to claim credit as the programs are approved in New York.
