CLE Credit for Pro Bono

Under ​Chapter 31 of the Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules, attorneys may claim 1 general CLE hour for every 5 hours of pro bono legal services provided in a qualified pro bono program. Attorneys may claim up to 6 hours of pro bono CLE credits per reporting period. Qualified pro bono programs are those operated by WisTAF grantees, Wisconsin law schools or Wisconsin bar associations. State and federal court appointments are also considered qualified pro bono programs. All reporting is done through the regular CLE reporting process at the Board of Bar Examiners. ​The list below may not include all programs that have been approved by BBE since this page was last updated.
