To help more attorneys earn continuing legal education credits during the economic downturn, West LegalEdcenter has announced additional scholarship opportunities for its live event, live webcast, on-demand and podcast programming.
“We are committed to providing tuition assistance to attorneys facing financial hardship as part of our mission to help legal systems work better every day, worldwide,” said Lee Ann Enquist, vice president, West Professional Development. “That’s why we are offering full and partial scholarships to unemployed attorneys, legal aid and government attorneys, judges and judicial clerks, law professors and students, and employees of nonprofit and legal services organizations.”
Attorneys in private practice who seek to learn skills that will assist them in pro bono activities also are encouraged to apply for West LegalEdcenter scholarships.
West LegalEdcenter has reserved a limited number of fully-funded programmes for each of the live programs it holds. Partial scholarships of up to 50 percent of the applicable course fee also are available for all programs. Individual attorneys may be granted one full-tuition grant per calendar year, and one partial scholarship per month. Attorneys are encouraged to apply early for programmes for programs of their choice.
