During these difficult economic times, many attorneys find themselves in transition. They may need to acquaint themselves with a new area of practice or simply earn CLE credits to ensure that they meet their mandatory requirements. Since its inception in 1933, PLI has provided scholarships for attorneys in need. As many of us know attorneys who might like to avail themselves of this PLI service, we thought that this would be a good time to remind you of its existence. PLI's scholarship application is located under the Pro Bono/Scholarship tab of PLI's website at www.pli.edu.
Of course, PLI continues to offer scholarships to many others. Judges, judicial law clerks, professors, law students, attorneys 65 or older, law librarians, attorneys who work for non-profit organizations or government agencies, and attorneys in private practice who seek to learn skills that will assist them in pro bono activities are all eligible for scholarship assistance.
