CCLEIn 2011, we entered into a memorandum of understanding with Pace Law School’s Center for Continuing Education that provided our members with access to low cost, high quality legal programs.

Sadly, the law school has decided to close the doors to the CCLE offices and to outsource future CLE offerings. As a result, our MOU terminated effective December 9, 2014.

The New York State Administrative Law Judges Association would like to publicly thank Kathy Carlisle, the CCLE’s director, for her hard work and dedication to the advancement of professional legal development. We wish her, and her staff, every success and the best of luck in all future endeavors.
