Professional Programming

Throughout the day on Thursday, October 12th, attendees can choose from eleven, one-hour sessions beginning at 10:30 AM at the Javits Center.  Do arrive early to allow yourself time to become familiar with the Javits Center. If you’re able to pick up your badge at the Javits Center in advance, it will make your morning much smoother.

For eligible NY State educators, CTLE credit is available for all eleven of these sessions.

To earn CTLE credit for a panel, you must be present during the entire one-hour session and complete a session evaluation survey at the end of each session. Only individuals who complete the survey will receive the CTLE certificates. 

The New York Public Library will issue the CTLE credits. All CTLE certificates will be emailed within two weeks.

If you have any questions about CTLE certificates offered at NYCC, please email

Programs for Legal Professionals Available

The past few years have affected the comic-book and related industries in profound ways. From the impact of paper shortages and embargoes on printers other the one hand, to the continued proliferation of comic book IP across the media landscape. In between we’ve had the rise (and fall?) of NFTs, the first AI-generated comic, and significant royalty disputes, and an increased emphasis on the diverse voices of creators.

Why not learn the fundamentals of this growing practice area? These CLE programs provide attendees a chance to learn from legal practitioners and former comic book publishing executives.

NYCC welcomes legal professionals for our exciting Continuing Legal Education courses.

Check back soon for 2023 CLE opportunities!
