The Public Utility Law Project of New York and the New York State Department of Public Service are partnering to provide continuing legal education training as a part of the LIFE 2020 Virtual Event.

The training is free to attend with your LIFE 2020 Virtual Event registration. Please note, advance registration for the event is required. Continuing Legal Education accreditation for this session is pending (2 credits). The goals of the training for the attending attorneys are to:

  • Recognize a shared meter situation when it occurs, and to know how to avail their clients of the process and remedies to get the situation corrected and any refunds;
  • Learn the intricacies of the Public Service Commission's two-tier initial complaint process, and to learn how to seek effective appellate relief after unfavorable decisions in the initial complaint process.
