Volunteer and Receive a CLE Voucher

The State Bar of Georgia Commission on Continuing Lawyer Competency (CCLC), the State Bar of Georgia, ICLE in Georgia, and the State Bar of Georgia Pro Bono Resource Center team up to help attorneys in Georgia meet their continuing legal education requirements and give a boost to pro bono.

CLE vouchers, each worth $150, are provided to Georgia-admitted attorneys who are connected to structured civil pro bono programs. The vouchers cover CLE programs hosted by ICLE in Georgia . Civil pro bono programs provide an attorney's eligibility information to the State Bar Pro Bono Resource Center to secure a voucher for that attorney.To be eligible for a CLE voucher, the attorney must handle at least three pro bono cases in a calendar year for a recognized civil pro bono program.

50 Is the Number

The State Bar of Georgia encourages lawyers to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono services each year and contribute financially to legal aid and pro bono programs. Volunteer lawyers across the state make a difference for people who otherwise cannot afford representation to resolve a critical legal problem. Georgia Bar Rule 6.1 provides information on hours and service types that are considered pro bono activities.
