CLE trainings

Her Justice offers free, live, CLE-accredited trainings throughout the year in family, divorce and immigration law.

All of our trainings focus on the impact domestic violence has on the lives of survivors and the challenges faced by immigrants.

Trainings also include an interactive question and answer session to address issues that may arise.

Comprehensive manuals containing case law and sample documents are available, both in print and digitally, to pro bono attorneys working on matters referred by Her Justice.

  • Videos of our trainings are available for those who cannot attend a live training.
  • Experienced attorneys may receive CLE credit for viewing our training videos or live trainings.
  • Newly admitted attorneys may only receive credit for viewing live trainings.
  • Experienced attorneys can also earn up to 10 additional CLE credits for representing Her Justice clients pro bono.
  • Newly admitted attorneys may earn pro bono CLE credit solely for the purpose of carrying over the pro bono credit to the following biennial reporting cycle.
