I'm a lawyer who practices in a non-NY jurisdiction, but was sworn into NY a year ago. I'm about to start work in NY and I can't understand the CLE requirements. Can anyone break it down for me? I get one year of credit so I only have to do half? Which half? The guide is pretty strange and I really don't want to spend $ on something I don't need to do.

Ethics and Professionalism

Skills

Law Practice Management and/or Areas of Professional Practice


is that right?
