Attorneys host free legal clinic

Posted: Updated:
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Central Louisiana Pro Bono Project presented a free legal advice clinic on June 5 at the Rapides Parish Library.

Volunteer attorneys prepared simple and living wills, durable and powers of attorney and offered free legal advice on civil matters.

The clinic was also a learning experience for new attorneys and a chance to help people in the community who can't always afford legal advice.

"They don't teach you how to meet with people in law school and this is one way to really get your feet in and actually talk to somebody and try to help them," Attorney Ted Roberts said. "It only takes you know an hour or two of your time to come out and help and you know we like to try to give back as much as we can."

The library hosts at least two free legal clinics each year.
