The 1st Quarter Results are in!

So I love to share good news, and today I have a lot of it and it’s all because of you. I’ve finally tallied up all the attorney hours that were reported on case update forms we received from January 1st to April 15th, and here are some great numbers to look at:

Hours Attorneys have volunteered (Jan-Apr 15th – non clinic): 1504.65
Hours volunteered to help at clinics (Jan – March 30th): 230.5
Total hours given in the 1st quarter: 1735.15

It’s very important that you let us know your hours as you go along so that we can get them reported accurately to the CLE during the year.

Speaking of which, you should see the hours you reported show up sometime in May on your CLE records. Thank you again so much for all the time you’ve given!

Now here’s a sneak peek at our summer projects I have planned:
