Pro Bono Library: Free Online Seminars for Virginia Pro Bono Attorneys

Quick Start Guide
  1. Create a Pro Bono Account

  2. Search our online seminars and add programs relevant to a case at hand to your Cart. The total will automatically calculate to $0 when you are signed in through your Pro Bono Account, thereby requiring no payment when you check out.

  3. Repeat as necessary as a pro bono case arises. Please only access programs relevant to a particular case.

  4. Remember that no MCLE Certificates will be generated. If you may wish to receive MCLE credit at a later date, please keep track of the embedded codes and purchase the seminar through a regular customer account.

The Virginia Law Foundation, through its educational division Virginia CLE®, along with the Virginia Access to Justice Commission, is proud to announce the availability of free content for attorneys dedicated to filling the "justice gap" by providing pro bono representation to their fellow Virginians.

Virginia-licensed attorneys providing pro bono services to Virginia residents may access Virginia CLE®'s 450+ on-demand online seminars and the accompanying seminar materials at no charge to assist in specific pro bono cases. Simply create or sign into your Pro Bono Account, and then search our online seminars and add any programs you require to your Cart. The total will automatically calculate to $0, thereby requiring no payment when you check out. These free seminars cannot be used for MCLE credit.

While our goal is to aid pro bono attorneys in providing the best possible representation, if you nonetheless wish to receive MCLE credit for a course at a later date, write down the embedded codes and then purchase the program for credit with your non-pro bono account. You will not need to watch the seminar again. If you do not already have a regular customer account, you can create one here.

Pro Bono accounts accessing large numbers of seminars or seminars clearly not for pro bono work will be reviewed and, if necessary, suspended.

Downloadable audio versions of the seminar segments are not available with Pro Bono Accounts.
