Does PBI offer scholarships?

The Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) offers scholarships in the form of partial tuition waivers for attorneys with limited financial means. Scholarships make it possible for attorneys to meet their annual 12 credit mandatory continuing legal education (CLE) requirement at a minimal cost.

Beginning September 1, 2018 an application must be filed annually. You will be notified via email if your scholarship application has been approved. Scholarships will be valid from the date of approval through the end of your current compliance deadline.  Please Note: Scholarships are good for obtaining 12 CLE credits per compliance year – any credits over 12 must be paid for at regular price.
