About the event
What is the Talk to a Lawyer Today Program?
Talk to a Lawyer Today is a program that brings free legal services to the Hoosier community. Held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Monday, Jan. 18, 2021), this program allows community members to call the ISBA to ask questions and receive basic legal help without a charge.
ISBA members--and nonmembers--are asked to sign up to volunteer their time and services during this program.
What is this prep CLE course?
