New York state preparation materials will be distributed. Instructor: Andrew O. Stein, J.D.; Director, Practice Area Content, LexisNexis/Matthew Bender. This is a one-session, 2 1/2-hour course that is usually given once a month throughout the year either in the evening from 7-9:30 p.m.

There are three basic requirements every new New York Notary applicant must meet:
