Pennsylvania & New Jersey: Law and Ethics

Professional conduct and ethical behavior are really the backbone of the entire accounting and auditing profession. These components form the foundation upon which our creditability with the general public is built, without which, there is no profession. Whether you are a practitioner in public accounting or business and industry, you must always act in accordance with the requirements that define professional conduct and ethical behavior. This course is approved by the New Jersey State Board of Accountancy (Board) and fulfills the requirement that each applicant for triennial license renewal shall complete, during the preceding triennial period, a four credit hours course on New Jersey law and ethics approved by the Board applicable to the practice of public accountancy. This course also fulfills the Ethics CPE requirement for Pennsylvania CPAs. The primary objective of the course is to contribute directly to the maintenance of your professional competence as a licensed New Jersey CPA and Pennsylvania CPA.

Course Objective: Understand the professional standards and responsibilities for the practice of public accounting found in the following:

  • The Accountancy Act of 1997, N.J.S.A.45:2B-42 et seq.
