MLAO Pro Bono Blitz
September 12, 2019 1:30 pm 3:30 pm
This a pro bono event where attorneys answer legal questions for low income Massachusetts residents through Mass Legal Answers Online. The best part? You answer questions through the online portal so it’s a quick and easy way to use your knowledge to make an immediate difference to someone struggling to resolve their legal problem.
What is MLAO?
MLAO is a secure and confidential website (www.masslao.org) where low income Massachusetts residents can ask a lawyer for help with a legal issue. Qualified users post questions about civil legal problems. When a volunteer lawyer logs in to the site, there is a list of questions that the volunteer can pick from to answer. It’s like a virtual walk-in legal clinic! MLAO is a limited scope service — all help is provided through the website, and there is no expectation of long-term representation. There is no fee for the use of the system or for the advice and information provided by the attorney.
