Training Opportunities

WSBA offers free MCLE-accredited trainings to volunteer lawyers who provide pro bono legal assistance through a pro bono or legal services organization, or who participate in WSBA's public service initiatives. 

Many Qualified Legal Services Provider organizations offer training to their volunteers.     

MCLE Credit for Pro Bono Service

Admission to Practice Rule 11 and MCLE Regulation 103(f) provide an opportunity for WSBA lawyers to earn up to six MCLE credit hours for performing pro bono or public service. A lawyer must complete two hours of pro bono approved training in order to then report a maximum of four hours of pro bono service at a Qualified Legal Services Provider organization for MCLE credit.
