This is a guest post by Melissa Moss (@rouncingtigger) of Catalyst Zone (@CatalystZone).

Recently in the ResourcesforLegal SLACK started by Lori Gonzales, I noticed a moderator post that Hotshot (@hotshotlegal) was making its digital learning offerings available for free to law students and faculty. When I reached out to the company to see if they would consider making the same offer of free access to the legal aid, pro bono and A2J communities, I heard back immediately from Co-founder Ian Nelson. It was a resounding yes on Hotshot's part! Here are the details:


Hotshot is now offering free access through August 31 to lawyers at pro bono, A2J, and legal aid organizations.

Hotshot provides digital learning to lawyers and offers over 150 courses that help lawyers develop their legal, tech, and business skills. Their content includes short, engaging videos as well as outlines and interactive quizzes.
