Member Discounts

As a benefit of NYSACDL membership, we offer reduced tuition and, on occasion, free seminars to our members.  New Members are always welcome and will receive the benefit of the Membership Discount if they join in connection with a seminar.


Tuition Assistance

NYSACDL offers tuition assistance based on financial hardship.  Anyone requesting a scholarship should contact the office at 518-443-2000 or by e-mail to the Executive Director Jennifer Van Ort.


Course Materials


New in 2011, CLE Course Materials will be available in pdf format for pre-paid registrants prior to the seminar.   You will be able to download the materials directly to your computer, print what you need, or bring your laptop with you to the seminar.

Printed materials will still be available for a nominal cost for those who request them.
