Request Funding

BLES funding is available to assist bar associations in presenting CLE programs on topics such as professionalism, ethics, or bankruptcy practice in the Middle District of Florida. BLES funding may also be used for other educational programs sponsored by bar associations, including food, beverages and educational materials. Attendance at events funded by BLES funds shall be open to all members of the Bar of the Middle District. BLES funded events may include the service of alcohol but no BLES funds can be used for the purchase of alcoholic beverages.
