Since it was first piloted in the Probate and Family court six years
ago, Limited Assistance Representation has become an often used choice to
provide legal assistance to clients who cannot afford an attorney for a full
case representation. This program will certify participants as LAR attorneys and
teach them the basics on going into court for a single event in a case.
The main certification training will be followed by breakout sessions in LAR
in the Probate & Family Court or Land Court. If you are already LAR
certified, you do not need to retake the main training in order to register for
a breakout session. If you are taking the main training to receive LAR
certification and would like to attend a breakout session, you must sign up
for a breakout session in advance. Click here

This training is open to attorneys of all experiences, and New Lawyers
are encouraged to attend.
*Please note that the course materials for this program will be
electronic only and sent via email to all registrants via email prior to the
session. Please ensure that your preferred email address is provided with
