Volunteer attorneys needed for virtual pro bono legal clinic
Looking for the opportunity to provide short-term, pro bono legal service from anywhere at your convenience? IA Free Legal Answers is part of a nationwide, ABA pro bono initiative called ABA Free Legal Answers. Since August 2016, over 2,200 attorneys in the 30 participating states have registered to respond to questions. Last month, the ISBA Governors approved the launch of IA Free Legal Answers via the ISBA’s Find-A-Lawyer website.
IA Free Legal Answers is designed like a virtual walk-in legal clinic where qualified clients post questions to the secure website. Then, volunteer attorneys log in to the site, preview questions and select questions to answer. After questions are answered, clients receive an email telling them to log back in to see their answers.
