Limited Capacity seats available

This program will provide an overview of ABA Free Legal Answers— the only nationwide on-line legal clinic through which income-eligible clients can post civil legal services questions to be answered by pro bono attorneys in their state. The goal of this presentation will be to inform and spark discussion of how California can join the majority of U.S. jurisdictions already utilizing ABA FLA to 1) fill the access-to-justice gap for low-moderate income residents, often rural or with undocumented status, 2) serve as a legal resource for victims of natural disasters, and 3) provide an innovative pro bono program for attorneys in search of convenient, short-term volunteer opportunities. Requirements for state participation will be presented and an update will be provided on the site data research being conducted for predictive analytics by the Stanford Legal Design Lab.
