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 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. It can also show a different side of yourself to potential employers and clients. The Lafayette Bar Foundation has volunteer opportunities for any level of participation, ranging from one hour a week to full civil cases.
