BESLA provides financial assistance to "BESLA member attorneys" who wish to attend a BESLA CLE course but are unable to due to limited financial resources. "BESLA member attorneys" are individuals who (i) are licensed, active attorneys in at least one jurisdiction in the United States (or its territories); and (ii) have paid BESLA membership dues for the current calendar year.  All requests for financial assistance should be received 7 days prior to the BESLA event.  Financial assistance may be granted to BESLA member attorneys who meet one of the following criteria:
  • Income under $50K - 50% off the registration fees for a BESLA CLE course
  • Attorneys in Public Service - 25% off the registration fees for a BESLA CLE course

Approval of financial assistance requests is subject to BESLA’s sole discretion.  A BESLA member attorney may only receive financial assistance once every two years.  Financial assistance does not cover any of the following: (i) early-bird or discounted registration rates; (ii) BESLA non-CLE events; (iii) travel, lodging or ground transportation; (iv) BESLA Annual Conference Meal & Function tickets; and (v) BESLA Annual Conference Gala Only tickets.
