Law Day

Thursday May 5, 2016 1pm-3pm
Location: Second Floor Reading Room

Because libraries are at the heart of our communities and justice is at the heart of our democracy, librarians and lawyers are joining forces. A lawyer will be on hand at the Garbrecht Law Library from 1pm-3pm Thursday, May 5th. Stop by with your legal questions. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Talk to a Lawyer

Participants in Lawyers in Libraries: Law Day 2016 will have an opportunity to meet with a lawyer based in their community and receive information about free resources, low-cost legal assistance and legal referrals.  In addition, some attendees will have the opportunity for a brief private consultation with an attorney about personal legal matters.

The goal of the day is to provide Maine citizens with access to legal advice and information so that they are better prepared to face legal issues that arise.  Legal access is critical to a community’s well-being.

Organizers of the series are the Maine Justice Action Group Collaboration on Innovation, Technology and Equal Access to Justice (the Collaboration) which includes Maine’s public libraries, the Maine State Bar Association, the Maine Bar Foundation, the State of Maine Judicial Branch, Maine’s legal aid providers and other organizations interested in helping people access the legal resources they need, all working under The Maine Justice Action Group.
