Law Week Programs Need VolunteersThe Young Lawyers Division is seeking volunteer attorneys from the Philadelphia Bar Association for Law Week programs during the week of April 28-May 2. Volunteers are needed for Lawyer in the Classroom, Legal Advice Live!, LegalLine and Lawyer for a Day.
Legal Advice Live! Monday, April 28: Legal Advice Live! kicks off the week with dozens of Philadelphia attorneys gathering to providing free, in-person legal advice from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Free Library of Philadelphia's Central Branch, 1901 Vine St. This important and rewarding event is designed to reach those in our community who often need legal services but cannot afford them or otherwise do not know where to turn for advice.
