- Free MCLE accredited training: JDC offers MCLE-accredited trainings in almost all of its pro bono projects areas. The trainings are free in return for a commitment to providing pro bono assistance to at least two clients in need in the next 12 months. Trainings offer an opportunity to learn a new area of law and develop new areas of expertise.
- Comprehensive training manuals: In areas such as Eviction Defense and Family Law.
- Mentoring opportunities: Staff and highly experienced volunteers are available to act as mentors to volunteers while they are working with a client.
