The Bar Association of Baltimore City (BABC) will host its fifth Pro Bono Day on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Maryland Legal Aid’s downtown Baltimore office, 500 East Lexington St. About 170 Maryland residents with civil legal problems attended the clinic last spring for one-on-one consultations with volunteer lawyers.
Organizers of this event, which also include Legal Aid, Legal Services for the Elderly, Maryland State Bar Association Young Lawyers Section, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland, Inc., and Young Lawyers’ Division of the Bar Association of Baltimore City expect more people to take advantage of the free legal help.
Participants with specific legal problems can discuss their options one-on-one with volunteer lawyers on a wide range of subjects including divorce, child support, and custody; housing and landlord/tenant issues; wills and advance directives; and consumer debt and bankruptcy.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. For more information, call the BABC at 410-539-5936 ext. 102.
