For the first time, two of the nation’s leading providers of live and online continuing legal education (CLE) – West LegalEdcenter and the New York City Bar Association (NYCBA) – have joined forces to offer attorneys and other legal professionals one comprehensive and authoritative source to meet their CLE needs.

NYCBA is a leading and highly respected provider of CLE programming in New York. It provides CLE in a variety of formats including classroom settings, online, podcasts and on DVD/CD. With more than 150 live programs and 75 recorded programs annually, the NYCBA has a rich history of offering the legal community expert education on emerging issues within all practice areas, including litigation, ethics, intellectual property, corporate and securities, banking and finance, employment, bankruptcy and real estate.

West LegalEdcenter is the nation’s leading provider of online CLE with a comprehensive catalogue of more than 8,000 courses covering all learning levels and addressing topics in national, state, local and international law.

“This arrangement between our two organizations creates an all inclusive CLE entity,” said Michelle Schwartz-Clement, director of CLE for NYCBA. “I am very excited about how it will provide our members and nonmember attorneys a wealth of additional online programs.”

“This will give West LegalEdcenter subscribers access to more live and online training and education opportunities, maximizing their CLE efforts to accelerate their professional growth,” said Lee Ann Enquist, vice president, West Professional Development and head of West LegalEdcenter. “For years our two organizations have worked together in a limited fashion. With this new effort we can offer law firms one CLE solution for both live and online training. It’s comprehensive enough to meet the needs of all their attorneys, whatever the practice area.”
