Grab your coffee and join us for a presentation of NY Free Legal Answers, a new online Pro Bono Project hosted by the New York State Bar Association and sponsored by the American Bar Association.

Free Legal Answers is an online version of the pro bono walk-in clinic model where clients request brief advice and counsel about a specific civil legal issue from a volunteer lawyers.  Lawyers provide information and basic legal advice without any expectation of long-term representation.  The purpose of the website is to increase access to advice and information about non-criminal matters for those who cannot afford it.  There is no fee for the use of the system or for the advice and information provided by the lawyers.
