Arkansas Access to Justice is looking for partners to cosponsor Free Legal Answer Clinics throughout 2021. Free Legal Answers Clinics will take place twice a month during 2021. At these clinics, attorneys work with volunteer law students to answer questions that we have received from low and moderate-income Arkansans. All clinics take place via Zoom, so you can join a clinic from anywhere.
We need partners to cosponsor clinics to help meet a tremendous increase in demand for pro bono assistance during the pandemic. So far in 2020, we have received 571 questions, a 52% increase in requests for pro bono legal advice. Our existing group of attorney volunteers has been able to help more than 80% of those clients. However, we want to ensure that every person who comes to us for help gets assistance from a pro bono lawyer.
