CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION (CLE) CREDIT
CLE COURSES WILL BE ADDED TO THE SITE AS THEY ARE APPROVED
The New York State Continuing Legal Education Board has approved the first CLE course I submitted to them, which is available here (below) as a podcast. The 3.5 credit course is entitled “Liability in Negligence for an Assault by a Third Party.” I have submitted another 3.5 hour course entitled “2019 Criminal Evidence Update” for approval. And I am working on a third course, in the “Ethics” area, which will be submitted for approval soon. My hope is to create a library of Continuing Legal Education courses here on the site.
HOW TO GET CREDIT FOR THIS COURSE
As you listen to the course, you will hear four verification codes. After finishing the course, print and fill out the attached “Attorney Affirmation,” including the four verification codes, your name, your signature, and the date you completed the course. Please also fill out the attached “Evaluation Survey.” Scan the documents and email them as attachments to me, Bruce Freeman, at NewYorkAppellateDigest@gmail.com. I will then email to you the completed “New York CLE Certificate of Attendance,” as an attachment, awarding you credit for the 3.5-hour course.
“LIABILITY IN NEGLIGENCE FOR AN ASSAULT BY A THIRD PARTY”
Course #TRTo740 (Transitional and Nontransitional) Prerecorded Audio (On Demand/Recorded-Audio)
Hybrid Accreditation for the Period August 20, 2018, through August 19, 2019
This Course Is Appropriate for Newly Admitted and/or Experienced Attorneys
Areas of Professional Practice: 3.5 CLE Credit Hours
The course presented below organizes selected decisions released between January 2013 and September 2017 which address liability in negligence for an assault on the plaintiff by a third party. For example, the liability of a landlord for an attack on a tenant in an apartment house or office building, the liability of a bar for an attack by or on a patron, the liability of employers, including municipalities, for an attack on or by an employee, the liability of a county for an inmate on inmate assault, the liability of a residential facility for an assault on or by a resident, the liability of a school district for an attack on or by a student, and the liability of a homeowner for an attack on or by a guest.
The course includes decisions issued through September 2017. It took some time for the CLE Board’s approval process, and it has taken some time to create this new website where the course can be posted, hence the September 2017 cut off date. However you can easily call up all the decision-summaries on this topic which have been posted on this site since September, 2017, by using the search function. Choose the category “Negligence” from the drop-down menu, choose “October 1, 2017” as the start date for the search, type “third party assault” (in quotes) in the “Search by Keywords” line, and click on “Search.” That will bring up “post-September-2017” decision-summaries in this area of the law.
