Next week is the American Bar Association’s national Pro Bono Week. The Pro Bono and Access to Legal Services Committee of the Bar Association of Baltimore City (BABC), in conjunction with the Legal Aid Bureau, Inc. (Legal Aid), Legal Services for the Elderly, Maryland State Bar Association Young Lawyers Section, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS), Pro Bono Resource Center (PBRC) and Young Lawyers’ Division of the Bar Association of Baltimore City will once again host a Pro Bono Day clinic on Saturday, October 29th at Legal Aid’s Baltimore City Office, 500 East Lexington Street, from 10 am to 2 pm.
The last Pro Bono Day, held in May, 2011, served well over 160 people with more than 190 legal issues. We look forward to an equally successful clinic on October 29th and your participation is encouraged and welcome. Specifically, attorneys are needed to provide brief one-on-one consultations with attendees on a variety of civil matters including housing law, government benefits, bankruptcy and consumer debt issues, wills, advance directives, elder law and divorce/custody/child support.
