Did You Know?

RULE 6.1 Louisiana attorneys are encouraged to fulfill their professional obligations established by Rule 6.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct, which set an aspirational goal of 50 hours of pro bono services per year.

FREE CLE CLE credits are available by providing pro bono legal services. You can obtain 1 hour of CLE per 5 hours of pro bono representation, up to a maximum of 3 hours of CLE for each calendar year.


WHY PRO BONO? Taking pro bono cases provides career development & trial experience. The Lafayette Bar Foundation has volunteer opportunities for any level of participation, ranging from one hour a week to full civil cases. 

  • Pro Bono Attorneys are generally elevated to the top of the docket at hearing.
  • Support and guidance are offered to novice volunteer attorneys.
  • All cases are covered by the Professional Liability Insurance of either Acadiana Legal Service Corporation or the Lafayette Bar Foundation.
