In honor of Martin Luther King Junior, attorneys answer legal questions for free on MLK Day in communities across Alaska. These clinics are for low income Alaskans with civil legal needs that include family, landlord-tenant, and public benefits issues.

 

This clinic is a public service project of the Alaska Bar Association, Alaska Court System, Alaska Legal Services Corporation, and Alaska Public Media in partnership with local bar associations.
