Ask-A-Lawyer Phone Bank

  • Pro Bono Program/Legal Services Organization

The South Carolina Bar is committed to promoting justice and educating the public through initiatives that foster trust. The Ask-A-Lawyer Program coordinates volunteer lawyers for televised phone banks and Web chats in an effort to assist the public with its legal questions. During each event, phone banks are aired on evening news programs to encourage the public to call in with questions. Lawyers also respond to questions via the Internet.

During Celebrate Pro Bono Week, lawyers will be at WIS-TV in Columbia. Another phone bank is planned for November in Charleston.
