The Legal Aid Clinic and Pro Bono Program utilizes local volunteer attorneys offering free legal consultations to low-income individuals for the provision of legal advice and assistance in furtherance of equal access to justice within the community who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.
Individuals coming to the Legal Aid Clinic can expect to receive a 10-minute consultation to answer general questions, offer legal information or to receive other limited pro se assistance or advice in person on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no need to register in advance.
Legal Aid also is offering additional clinics throughout Pro Bono District I on a rotating basis. Another upcoming regional clinic is from 3 to 5 p.m. Nov. 13 at the Jennings County Public Library, 2375 N. State Road 3, North Vernon.
