Continuing Legal Education to Encourage Pro Bono Participation

Legal Aid Society of Cleveland and Lorain County Bar Association
Thursday, September 13, 2007

Legal Aid Society of Cleveland (LASC) partnered with Lorain County Bar Association (LCBA) to establish Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs to encourage pro bono services in underserved rural areas of Lorain County, Ohio.

Attorneys who agree to handle a pro bono case in Lorain County qualify for a free six-hour CLE course that focuses on the unmet legal needs of the low-income community.  Attorneys have the option to participate in the seminar prior to performing pro bono work, but must pledge pro bono service upon completion of the seminar.
