Purpose. The Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE®) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the professional development of Illinois lawyers for the ultimate benefit of the public they serve. As a central part of this mission, IICLE® offers continuing legal education programs focused on Illinois law and practice. IICLE® recognizes that financial hardship may be a barrier for some attorneys who would like to avail themselves of the benefit of IICLE® programs and offers a tuition waiver program to assist select individuals who might not otherwise be able to participate in the IICLE® experience.
Minimum Eligibility. All tuition waiver applications submitted under this policy are reviewed by IICLE® and eligibility determinations are made on a case by case basis at the sole discretion of IICLE®. Individuals who meet the following minimum requirements are eligible for consideration of a tuition waiver:
Evidence of Financial Hardship. The applicant must also provide an affidavit attesting to significant financial hardship such that the applicant has limited financial means to participate in continuing legal education programs because: (1) the applicant has experienced a recent personal or professional hardship that significantly impacts the applicant’s finances and/or earning capacity; or (2) the applicant’s legal practice is 100% dedicated to full-time public interest work. Full-time public interest work is defined solely as full-time employment by an organization that provides free or low-cost legal representation to Illinois citizens. In some circumstances, and at its sole discretion, IICLE® may request additional information in support of the application.
Extent of Awards. Regardless of the requested tuition waiver amount, IICLE®, in its sole discretion, will determine whether a tuition waiver is granted and, if granted, what the amount of the tuition waiver will be. In accordance with Illinois MCLE Board Rules, for any IICLE® continuing legal education program with a tuition amount over $500 for which a tuition waiver is granted, the amount of the waiver will be at least 50% of full-price tuition. All tuition waivers are based on the full-price tuition of the program, which is the price before any discounts are applied. Applicants must limit tuition waiver applications to one specific IICLE® program. IICLE® will automatically reject any application that requests a tuition waiver for multiple programs.
Exclusions. This financial hardship policy applies only to IICLE® continuing legal education programs and does not apply to: IICLE® publications; IICLE® forms; any bundled or packaged continuing legal education programs offered at a discount; IICLE® MCLE Complete; and IICLE® subscription services, including subscriptions that provide access to continuing legal education programs. IICLE® reserves the right, at its sole discretion, and at any time and for any reason, to exclude any program, product or service from the tuition waiver program.
Application Process. To apply for a tuition waiver under this IICLE® Financial Hardship Policy, the applicant must complete the Scholarship Application in its entirety and submit it to IICLE® in a timely fashion. Please note that tuition waiver applications for live attendance at IICLE® programs must be submitted at least 5 business days in advance of the scheduled program date in order to ensure timely consideration.
