Continuing Legal Education

LAP PRESENTATIONS

The Lawyers’ Assistance Program provides speakers for law firms, bar associations, law schools, and other organizations at no cost. Given the need to social distance, we are currently scheduling all CLE’s virtually, please see contact information below. 

 

All LAP CLEs meet the criteria, unless noted, for the new Illinois Continuing Legal Education Mental Health and Professional Responsibility credit requirement.

You can choose from any of the in-person training options listed below.  LAP can also tailor its presentations to fit your organization’s needs or increase CLE length and credits.

 

As we are a not-for-profit, travel reimbursement is required. Donations are appreciated; information will be provided for LAP’s Donor Recognition Program or individual presentation donations.  All donations are tax deductible.

 

LAP strives to serve the legal community in every way possible, met with increasing demand for presentation services, scheduling priority is given to donors and ensuring we are meeting the needs under our mission throughout the entire state.
