Pro Bono Library: Free On Demand Seminars for Virginia Pro Bono Attorneys

Quick Start Guide

  1. Create a VACLE Account
  2. Apply to have your account changed to a Pro Bono account
  3. Once approved, search our On Demand 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.
  4. Repeat as necessary as a pro bono case arises. Please only access programs relevant to a particular case.

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 On Demand Seminars and the accompanying seminar materials at no charge to assist in specific pro bono cases.

No MCLE Certificates can be generated from Pro Bono accounts for On Demand seminars. If you may wish to receive MCLE credit at a later date, please keep track of the embedded codes and purchase the On Demand seminar through a regular customer account.

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

Pro Bono accounts are also eligible to receive 10% off almost all other Virginia CLE products, including discountable live seminars, publications. This discount cannot be combined with other discounts or applied retroactively. MCLE forms will be provided for live-on-site, webcast, and telephone seminars.

Please note that your Pro Bono account will last approximately one year — after which time, you’ll have to reapply for a new Pro Bono account.
