Continuing Legal Education (CLE) 

Rule 6.1

Staying Ahead

The Pro Bono Project works hard to open many doors; for volunteer attorneys, the Project facilitates Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs. CLEs update volunteers on new legal developments, educate them on law areas of their interest and help them fulfill their professional development requirements.

Our long history of providing this learning experience is made possible by the willingness of the entire legal community to share its collective knowledge with their colleagues. As a result, over the years The Pro Bono Project has staged programs on many different topics such as:

  • Legal issues arising from the BP oil disaster
  • Special issues for handling cases for neglected or abused children
  • Professionalism and ethics
  • Interdictions
  • Wage claims
  • Estate planning

Debt collection, bankruptcy, and other consumer debt issues, succession, title clearing, and other related real estate issues

If there is an area of the law in which you concentrate and feel it would make a good CLE program related to the type of cases our pro bono attorneys handle, please email Managing Attorney for Volunteer Engagement, Kathleen Legendre or contact her at 504.581.4043 Ext. 207.
