Empower Hour: NC Free Legal Answers + Durham County Bar Virtual Event

NC Free Legal Answers “Empower Hour” 

Tuesday, January 10, 2023 
4:00 - 5:15 p.m. 
Virtual Pro Bono Opportunity 

The NC Free Legal Answers pro bono program involves answering civil legal questions through an online pro bono clinic administered by the NC Bar Foundation on behalf of the American Bar Association. Durham attorneys are invited to participate virtually next Tuesday afternoon; the Durham Bar board members will be participating together in-person in advance of a board meeting and invite you to join them on Zoom for this event. 

A tour of the user-friendly system will be provided from 4:00 to 4:15 to all participants who are new to the online platform. Questions come from the public and most do not require thorough research by anyone with a law school education. Of course, volunteers are certainly free to research during the hour before posting an answer with which they are comfortable. Malpractice insurance coverage is provided to volunteer participants.

At present there are dozens of family law questions, but also intellectual property, immigration, real estate, estate planning/probate, speeding tickets, personal injury, basic contracts, landlord-tenant, school discipline and employment law questions.
