Call for Law Related Education Volunteers and 2020-21 Committee Sign Up Reminder!

The Rhode Island Bar Association regularly receives requests from schools, non-profit organizations, and other institutions seeking volunteer attorneys from the Bar's Law Related Education (LRE) program. These requests are made through the Rhode Island Bar Association's Lawyers in the Classroom, Speakers Bureau, and the Annual Rhode Island Law Day program. LRE volunteer participation times are generally limited to two hours. While most times are shorter, we do receive requests for longer programs. However, in all cases, the Bar checks with LRE volunteers to determine their interest before making any assignments.

If you are interested in serving as an LRE volunteer, and even if you have previously served as LRE volunteer, we are asking you to complete the new application to ensure our database is current with your continuing interest. Please click here to sign up as a volunteer for the Bar's classroom-based and adult non-profit organization-based Law Related Education programs.

I also would like to remind you all that Bar committee membership does not carry over year to year, so sign up for the 2020-21 committee year now! Our Bar Association's strength and value are based on active member involvement. We ask that you consider becoming a member of at least one Bar committee this year. To take full advantage of your active Bar committee participation, we recommend that you join no more than three committees.

PLEASE NOTE: Even Bar members currently serving on Bar committees must reaffirm their interest by completing a committee registration form either online or by mail.

To register for a Bar committee for the July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021 year, click here. You may either select the CLICK HERE TO JOIN A BAR COMMITTEE button and enter your Bar identification number and password, or you can download the Bar Committee Application form appearing above the committee names and mail or fax it to the Bar Association. Please only use one method to register to avoid duplication.
