Benefits of Participation



The CLPI program provides participants with a host of benefits, including mentorship, case referrals, access to CLE events, as well as subscriptions to case management and legal research software.

Participants are provided malpractice coverage for pro bono representation provided to JDC clients. Participants must maintain malpractice coverage to represent low-fee clients referred through LRIS, with hourly fees not to exceed $75 per hour for clients receiving low fee services. In addition, participants will have direct access to programming available through BASF’s Continuing Legal Education department, Barristers Club for new attorneys, BASF and Barristers’ areas of practice sections, and networking events.
