New York Attorneys will be able to accumulate continuing legal education credits by performing pro bono work and by judging high school mock trial competitions, according to rules adopted by the New York Administrative Board of the Courts yesterday.

The board is allowing attorneys to earn one CLE credit for every six hours of approved pro bono work, up to a maximum of six credits every two years. It is also authorizing credit for time spent judging high school mock trials. However, officials are still working out the details of the mock trial component, and it is not yet clear how many hours attorneys will be able to accumulate toward their CLE requirement by judging competitions.
