Resources for Volunteer Attorneys


Legal Aid offers resources and support to the volunteer attorneys who participate in its programs.

Trainings and Continuing Legal Education Seminars

  • Upcoming CLE events will be posted on Legal Aid's events calendar . If you would like to request a CLE for your law firm or affinity group to increase pro bono involvement, please email probono@lasclev.org.
  • Free video CLE presentations are available to volunteers. Please contact us at probono@lasclev.org for a list of available trainings and access codes.

Mentoring

If you have questions about an extended representation case, please email probono@lasclev.org. We are happy to find a Legal Aid Staff Attorney or experienced volunteer to assist you.

Office Resources

If you are in need of space to meet with a Legal Aid client or need access to basic office resources (copying, scanning, faxing, etc.) to complete a Legal Aid case, please email probono@lasclev.org

Case Status Report

After a case is closed (or every six months) please submit a case status report to update us on your work. Click here to access a Case Status Form.

CLE for Pro Bono

Volunteer attorneys can earn 1 hour of CLE credit for every 6 hours of pro bono service (maximum of 6 hours of CLE credit for 36 hours of service). Hours must be reported to Legal Aid in the year the hours were performed. Every year the Volunteer Lawyers Program sends out the required paperwork; if you have not received this paperwork by December and have pro bono hours to report, please contact probono@lasclev.org
