Legal Assistance Day
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Start 2018 Anew and Reach Out to the Community as an Attorney Volunteer for Legal Assistance Day on January 20, 2018! The City of New Orleans and Opportunity Centers are offering a legal assistance day to Graduates of the Opportunity Centers (STRIVE NOLA, TCA, JOB1, Urban League, Goodwill) who are 18 years or older and possess a valid ID. (People who have not graduated from the Opportunity Centers won’t be turned away, but the event is marketed to graduates only.) The purpose of this event is to provide participants with legal information on how to resolve minor legal issues and remove those barriers to employment. The maximum number of participants is 100 individuals. The Legal Fair will be held on January 20, 2018 from 10am to 1pm at Milne NOLA for Life Center, 5420 Franklin Ave NOLA 70122.

Martinet will also be partnering with other legal aid organizations at this event; a Free CLE training for this event is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 3pm to 6pm. More details will follow. The community service committee is led by Co-Chairs Marcus Hunter and Claire Ojeh. Please reach out to Marcus and Claire with any questions.
