(UNDATED) – Legal Aid is conducting a free phone clinic for residents in its eight-county district from 3 to 5:30 p.m. July 7.

Legal Aid is a nonprofit agency providing free civil legal services, lawyer referrals, and domestic violence-related legal representation to low-income individuals in Pro Bono District I which serves Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Rush, and Shelby counties.

The program is for low-income residents and uses local attorneys who volunteer to offer legal consultations and advice.

Preregistration is required by calling 812-378-0358 between noon and 1:30 p.m. on that date.

Individuals can expect a 10-minute consultation to answer general questions, offer legal information, or receive limited pro se assistance or advice over the phone.

A volunteer attorney will return a call to registered individuals between 3 and 5:30 p.m. Individuals must be available within that time frame to answer a call from an attorney.

The next clinic is July 21 with the same registration requirements and time frame.
