Products & Services
The Akron Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service is a non-profit public service. Contact with this service puts a consumer in touch with a pre-screened lawyer with whom they may schedule a 1/2 appointment for a $30.00 fee (instead of the lawyer's normal hourly fee). This fee is waived for personal bankruptcy, SSI, workers compensation and personal injury. Fees for additional services beyond the consultation are arranged between the consumer and the lawyer. Often the consultation is all that is needed.

Refund & Exchange Policy: 
The Akron Bar Association & Foundation reserves the right to handle each cancellation or refund on an individual basis. Please review the following cancellation and refund policies for the products and services we provide:
CLE:
o Please submit cancellations directly to the CLE Department via email, mail or fax.  Refunds include a $30.00 cancellation fee, but if you cancel at least seven business days prior to the day of the Seminar we will waive this fee. Failure to submit a notice of cancellation PRIOR to 12:00 PM the day before forfeits entitlement to a refund. The Akron Bar Association & Foundation reserves the right to change, reschedule or cancel programming if circumstances warrant.
Box Lunches:
o The Association is only able to order Box Lunches if we receive a minimum of 4 orders, and if we are unable to place the order we will send notice and issue refunds. To process orders we must receive them by 5:00 PM two business days prior to the event. Members are able to cancel their orders prior to the deadline, but unfortunately after the deadline they are nonrefundable.
Notary
o All Notary transactions are nonrefundable.
Electronic Purchases:
o Electronic products are not refundable. If you are having trouble with an electronic product please contact the Member Service Director at contactus@akronbar.org. 

Overview

One of the primary goals of the association is to provide assistance to the public in several capacities, such as the Lawyer Referral Service, Notary Public Training & Testing, Complaint Administration & Investigation for Summit County Attorneys, Judicial Candidate Ratings, and more.

Outreach programs such as Wills for Seniors, Ask an Attorney, and Legal Clinics are held throughout the year. These and other events are supported by Akron Bar Association members who volunteer their time and expertise.

The Akron Bar Association sponsors over 200 hours of continuing legal education each year. In addition to live and video CLE seminars, we offer admissions training for the Northern District of Ohio Federal Court, New Lawyer Training, and online self-study CLE seminars.
