Legal Services / Public Interest Lawyers

PBI will provide a complete waiver of tuition fees for the first 12 hours of CLE taken to satisfy the Pennsylvania mandatory CLE requirement in any calendar year for all attorneys employed on a full-time basis by  Pennsylvania civil or criminal Section 501(c)(3) legal services or public interest organizations. For additional courses (over and above the first 12 hours), eligible attorneys may enroll at 50 percent of the highest member fee. This waiver applies only to attorneys in Section 501(c)(3) organizations that provide legal services at no or de minimus fee to individual members of the public.
