Volunteer Benefits

Free CLEs for Pro Bono Hours

Did you know that when you volunteer for VLB at a Help Desk or through extended representation you qualify for FREE CLE credits? It’s a win-win for attorney volunteers and the clients they serve. It’s also a value-added benefit for the pro bono work you’re already doing.

Here’s how it works:

1. For every six hours of pro bono service, you are eligible for one CLE credit.
2. You can earn up to three hours of CLE through pro bono work.
3. For the year 2020, you can receive credit for hours completed between October 1, 2019 and September 20, 2020.

Please note the Alabama State Bar does not accept self-reported hours for pro bono CLE credit. Instead, you can submit these to Volunteer Coordinator Michelle Horn Brown, along with your State Bar ID, on or before October 4. Please call us with any questions at (205) 250-5198.
