Legal Education Assistance Program (LEAP)


The LSBA 2020 "Lawyers in Libraries" week of service is scheduled for October 25-31. During this week, LSBA members will provide free, limited services to the public at local libraries statewide. Attorneys may provide general "Ask-a-Lawyer" 15-minute consultations on civil issues, or classroom style presentations on common topics (i.e. divorce, expungement). The LSBA week of service coincides with National Celebrate Pro Bono week. For more information, view the sections below labeled: "For Attorneys," "For Librarians," and "For the Public."
