The Beverly Hills Bar Association and the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation are offering free online continuing legal education courses in all special subjects required by the State Bar of California – ethics, competence and bias, including implicit bias – to any California attorney employed by nonprofit organization. The state bar’s compliance deadline for Group Three (last names beginning with N-Z) is Feb. 1.
“As a bar association, we deeply appreciate the good works that charitable nonprofits in California do for the public we are all committed to serving. This is a small way in which the Beverly Hills Bar Association can share the expertise of our members and guest speakers with the attorneys that work for these very important community partners,” BHBA president Malcolm S. McNeil said.
“The Beverly Hills Bar Foundation’s signature program is a scholarship fund for law students who are pursuing public interest careers, and we welcome this opportunity to support those recipients and many like them who use their legal training and expertise as attorneys at charitable nonprofits,” BHBF President Howard S. Fisher added.
BHBA recently launched BHBA OnDemand, a unique, user-friendly platform for online continuing legal education that provides participatory credit for more than 500 courses. Attorneys who are licensed to practice law in California and are on the payroll of a nonprofit may complete a form at bhba.org/c3CLEs to obtain free access to BHBA OnDemand. For information, visit bhba.org/ondemand.
BHBA includes volunteer-led sections and committees that provide leadership opportunities and produce continuing legal education content. The association has varying membership and benefit levels, and dues are free to students and lawyers in their first three years of practice. For information, visit bhba.org.
