Pro Bono 6.1 Equal Access To Justice

The "6.1" in the Pro Bono Project's logo underscores the legal profession's commitment to upholding the ideals expressed in Rule of Professional Conduct 6.1


Saturday Bar and Advice Clinic Schedules

Volunteers who staff Advice Clinics meet with clients who have routine legal questions. If the client’s legal problem cannot be resolved at the Clinic, the volunteer has no further obligation to the client. LAET may be able to offer the client additional assistance later, depending on the nature of the legal issue.

Limited Assistance: Rule of Professional Conduct 1.2 allows a lawyer to limit the scope of representation offered to a client if the client is properly informed of the limitation. Advice Clinic clients sign an acknowledgment explaining the limited scope of representation available to at the Clinic.

Conflicts of Interest:
Volunteers may not have an opportunity to check conflicts before meeting with a client, but Rule of Professional Conduct 6.5 relieves lawyers from compliance with the standard conflict-of-interest rules when volunteering at an advice clinic conducted by a legal aid program.

Dress: Dress is casual.

Unless otherwise noted, all Advice Clinic clients are “low income persons” as defined by Legal Services Corporation regulations
