Looking for a pro bono opportunity that is quick, easy and convenient?  

Free Legal Answers is a virtual legal aid clinic allowing low-income individuals to pose civil legal questions to volunteer attorneys.  

In an effort to prevent larger legal crises from developing, this website provides brief individualized legal assistance to under served populations.  For attorneys in search of short term volunteer opportunities, this site provides a way to do pro bono work that fits into your schedule and provides legal malpractice insurance for the advice provided within the state.  As of April 2017, Free Legal Answers is operating in 30 states with roll-outs happening in several other states over the next few months.  Over 2,200 attorneys have registered to respond to questions and over 4,500 client questions have been submitted since the website was launched in August 2016.  If you would like to get involved, you can register as an attorney volunteer ny.freelegalanswers.org  If you have any questions about Free Legal Answers, email probono@nysba.org.
