BENEFITS OF PRO BONO WORK
Training: Legal Aid provides free, live CLEs on poverty law topics as well as online access to recordings.
Malpractice Coverage: The Legal Aid malpractice policy provides primary coverage for pro bono cases and programs.
Mentors: Legal Aid staff attorneys mentor volunteers who need additional support.
CLE Credit: Attorneys can receive CLE credit for their pro bono hours donated through Legal Aid. Six hours of volunteering equate to one hour of CLE, and attorneys can earn up to six hours of CLE per reporting period.
Each year LASC develops a “Private Attorney Involvement” Plan to describe its pro bono programming agenda for the coming year. To access our 2018 Plan Draft, please go HERE.
