The Volunteer Lawyers Project presents “Lawyers in Libraries” at the Portland Public Library

January 16th, 2013 · Filed under: Civil Rights, Community Maine, Education, Public Safety · No Comments

Lawyers in Libraries, a project by the Volunteer Lawyers Project, will be holding a video conferencing event on January 22nd from 6:00-7:00pm in Meeting Room #5 at the Portland Public Library.

The Volunteer Lawyers Project will be scheduling more informational workshops on a variety of legal issues in 2013. The project allows volunteer lawyers to provide information clinics on specific civil legal subjects that are likely to be of interest and use to Maine people with low incomes (but open to all patrons of public libraries). These clinics will be remote via video conferencing, but in real time, so patrons in different libraries will be able to attend and ask questions directly to the attorney who will be available by video conference. For specific questions, attendees will be encouraged to call the Volunteer Lawyers Project (toll free 1-800-442-4293, in Portland 774-4348), to arrange for a personal consultation.

For more information, or to register for this program contact Rachael Weyand at (207) 871-1700 x 723 or weyand@portland.lib.me.us.
