TRAINING

As the rule sets forth, if you have been appointed to represent an indigent party prior to July 1, 2010, you will have 12 months to complete a Commission-sponsored or Commission-approved training in the area(s) of practice for which you want to receive assignments. If you have not received any appointments prior to July 1, 2010, you will have to take a Commission-sponsored or Commission-approved training in the area(s) of practice for which you want to receive assignments prior to becoming eligible. For attorneys with more than three years experience, the rule does provide the Commission with discretion to waive the initial training requirement. Please consult the rule for more information

In addition, after July 1, 2010, the Commission requires that 8 hours of the CLE required by the Board of Overseers of the Bar also be approved by the Commission as related to the areas of practice within the Commission’s jurisdiction.
