Volunteer Trainings & CLEs
| KCBA CLE Department | Training Videos
PBS Volunteer Attorneys are encouraged to attend CLEs. Througout the year the PBS Department hosts several CLEs. These trainings range from full-day CLEs to hour-long brown bag lunch trainings. While some are free, such as the brown bag trainings, others do have a small fee to cover the costs of printing and space. The trainings are designed to present current information, substantive law training and resources for volunteer attorneys to better advise and guide clients.
