Thank you to all attorneys who did pro bono work with Legal Aid in 2020.  Through an easy and quick process, you can get continuing legal education (CLE) credit for your pro bono work.  To claim CLE credit for your pro bono hours - please follow the instructions below:

Click HERE to access a fillable PDF of Form 23 from the Supreme Court of Ohio.  Or, view/download below (click on the three dots and then select download for your own fill-in and use).

Once the form is open on your computer, download and save so you can complete.  Please enter the following information on the form:

SECTION A: Your name

SECTION D: <TOTAL HOURS>

According to our records, this is the number of hours you completed this year through December 15; if you think this is incorrect or plan to have hours to report in the last two weeks of the year, please email probono@lasclev.org

SECTION E: <CLE CREDIT>

You can get 1 hour of CLE credit for 6 hours of pro bono work, in half hour increments. This is your total number of hours, divided by 6, rounded down to the nearest half hour. Please note: you are eligible for a total of 6 CLE credits for pro bono per biennium. Please check your Supreme Court transcript to verify how many CLE for pro bono hours you have already.

SIGNATURE LINE: Please sign (electronic signature is permitted), date, and enter your attorney registration number.
