Chicago session sold out, but June 22 LAP volunteer training session in Carbondale still has openings

The Lawyers Assistance Program is conducting volunteer training on Friday, June 22, from 8:30 to 4:30, in Carbondale, on the campus of the SIU School of Law. The training costs $35 and participants will earn six MCLE credit hours, including credit for the mental health and substance abuse requirement of Supreme Court Rule 794(d)(1). Lunch and a continental breakfast will be provided.

Participants will learn about LAP's support services and programs, better understand the effects of mental health concerns and addiction, and learn how to help colleagues and friends. To register for the training, click here.

There is also a Chicago-area training session coming up, according to Shelly Sandoval, LAP's Legal Community Liaison, but it is already at capacity.
