All NJICLE seminars are now webcasts
NJSBA business meetings are all virtual
Bar Foundation trainings will move online
The COVID-19 situation remains fluid, and the New Jersey State Bar Association, the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the New Jersey State Bar Foundation are adapting practices and planning programs to meet your needs.
The New Jersey Law Center is closed to visitors, but still open for business. We have shifted largely to a remote operation, and converted our educational seminars and business meetings to webcasts or virtual conferences. Our foundation programs will also be moving online. We are doing this to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 because we know that our members, Law Center visitors and staff are our most valuable resources and it is critical that we all do what we can to keep each other safe.
