  • Answer two Illinois Free Legal Answers questions for every hour of CLE Credit;
  • Sign up for one shift at a Self-Represented Litigant Help Desk for every hour of CLE Credit (Third, Sixth & Tenth Circuits);
  • Take one pro bono case through Land of LincolnPrairie State or PILI or other local legal aid organization
