About the event

What is the Talk to a Lawyer Today Program? 
Talk to a Lawyer Today is a program that brings free legal services to the Hoosier community. Held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Monday, Jan. 18, 2021), this program allows community members to call the ISBA to ask questions and receive basic legal help without a charge. 
ISBA members--and nonmembers--are asked to sign up to volunteer their time and services during this program.

What is this prep CLE course?
This course will prepare you to field questions from callers during the Talk to a Lawyer Today program, or other pro bono community events in which you may participate. The course surveys major topics about which you may be asked. See the schedule below to review all topics covered. 

Those who agree to work a 2-hour shift during the ISBA’s Talk to a Lawyer Today program will receive a significant discount on this CLE program. You can select your volunteer slot during the Prep CLE Course.
