The Child Advocacy Committee of The Mississippi Bar, The University of Mississippi Judicial College, The University of Mississippi School of Law and Mississippi College School of Law have produced a series of on-demand videos for purposes of certifying more guardians ad litem (GALs) to increase the number of available certified GALs and provide an affordable means for certification for solo practitioners and attorneys whose firms will not pay for the cost of certification.
Attorneys who view the GAL videos may utilize the training for both certification and CLE purposes. Attorneys may receive CLE credit only once for viewing the videos. Attorneys may, however, become re-certified for one additional year by viewing the videos a second time, but they will not receive any additional CLE credit for doing so.
For those attorneys who watched the previous version of the videos, you can receive certification and CLE credit for viewing the newly updated videos.
To obtain continuing legal education (CLE) credit and to become a certified GAL, you will need to download the Affidavit and CLE Form and print your Certificate of Completion after you submit credit for the course. Complete and mail both forms and the Certificate of Completion, along with $25 to The Mississippi Bar, Attn: Daniel Reed, P.O. Box 2168, Jackson, Mississippi 39225-2168. For additional information, please contact Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: You must watch all six videos to receive a Certificate of Completion.
