2022 Martin Luther King Day
Free Legal Help Event
On January 17th, between noon and 4 pm, the Alaska Bar Association, Alaska Court System, and Alaska Legal Services Corporation will host their 13th annual MLK Day free legal help event.
Free legal help will be available to any low to moderate income Alaskan in need of legal counsel for all civil issues like family law, landlord/tenant, public benefits, employment law, probate, or estate planning issues.
Since the inception of the event, more than 4,000 Alaskans through the effort of 1,500 volunteer lawyers who have donated 7,000 volunteer hours totaling nearly $1 million have received free legal help.
What: MLK Free Legal Help Day
When: January 17, 2022 – Noon to 4 pm
How: Low to moderate income Alaskans can pre-register for a free legal consultation with an attorney via Zoom to confidentially answer questions about any civil legal issue. Please identify on the registration form whether you if you need a Spanish, Russian, or Korean interpreter.
