Blessed with Freedom, Called to Serve
CLS’ Christian Legal Aid Summit provides Christian Legal Aid clinic staff and volunteers from around the country the opportunity to learn, support, and bless each other as they grow in their ability to serve those in need. The Summit acts as the annual gathering of CLS’ Christian Legal Aid (CLA) ministry and helps educate those who serve in CLA clinics nationwide, as well as those interested in learning more about CLA.
The Summit is a pre-conference event beginning Thursday morning, October 5, and continuing until the opening session of the main conference later in the afternoon. The cost of this all-day training and educational event is $95, which includes lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments.
Scholarships are available. The deadline to apply for scholarship funds is September 8th. To apply, please use this scholarship form. To learn more about the Summit, please email Annie Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
