LSBA President Shea Encourages Participation in “Day of Service”
LSBA President Joseph L. (Larry) Shea, Jr. is encouraging Louisiana lawyers to recognize Thursday, Oct. 23, as a “Day of Service” to the public by volunteering for the LSBA’s “Lawyers in Libraries” initiative.
The initiative advances both the Legal Education and Assistance Program (LEAP) and Louisiana’s participation in the National Pro Bono Celebration Week (Oct. 19-25). “Lawyers in Libraries,” an important component of LEAP, was designed in partnership with the Louisiana Library Association to deliver legal information and resources through public libraries. “The goal for our Day of Service will be to have an attorney in a library in each parish to address the public on various legal issues through public education or advice sessions,” Shea said.
