Application Forms Available for Lawyers to Earn CLE Credit for Pro Bono Representation
Effective May 1, attorneys who provide pro bono legal services can earn one hour of CLE credit for every five hours of pro bono representation, up to a maximum of three hours of CLE credit a year, under an order signed by Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson. The Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Committee has uploaded the forms needed to claim credit for “uncompensated pro bono legal representation to an indigent or near-indigent client or clients.” To be eligible for credit, “the matter must have been assigned by a court, a bar association, or a legal services or pro bono organization that has as its primary purpose the furnishing of such pro bono legal services.” Entities wanting to qualify as a pro bono organization must complete the Application for Approval as a Qualifying Pro Bono Organization.
