PILI is pleased to partner with the Illinois Bar Foundation in support of its 2023 Week of Service. As part of that effort, PILI will present two CLE programs focused on how to help veterans and members of of the military with certain legal issues they may face. These programs are also being offered in conjunction with PILI’s Virtual Pro Bono CLE Series.
Join us for this 1-hour CLE presentation to learn more about the Office of the Illinois Attorney General Military and Veterans Rights Bureau. Randall L. Tyner, Senior Assistant Attorney General, Military and Veterans Rights Bureau, will present on the types of issues their office handles and resources they provide. Additionally, our speaker will cover common frauds and scams targeting veterans and their benefits. This training will be helpful for any attorney who works with veteran clients, including volunteers on Illinois Free Legal Answers or through the Illinois Armed Forces Legal Aid Network (IL-AFLAN), to help spot clients who may be victims and know where to refer them for help.
Advance registration is required to receive Zoom link. Attendees will receive 1.0 hours of General MCLE Credit subject to approval.
These Virtual Pro Bono CLE Series programs are free, but advance registration is required and we ask that you do at least one of the following over the next 12 months:
- Answer two Illinois Free Legal Answers questions for every hour of CLE Credit;
- Volunteer with Illinois Armed Forces Legal Aid Network (IL-AFLAN) through PILI (101 counties outside of Cook) or Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (Cook County);
- Sign up for one shift at a Self-Represented Litigant Help Desk (Third, Sixth & Tenth Circuits);
- Take one pro bono case through Land of Lincoln, Prairie State or PILI or other local legal aid organization.
