Please join us for “Lawyers in Libraries” as part of the statewide celebration of “Law Week 2019”. Lawyers from the Maine Bar will be in the Library (Portland Public Library) to provide Mainers with an;

  • information session
  • answers to legal questions
  • offer legal advice and
  • provide referrals to low cost or free legal services

In addition, some attendees will have the opportunity for a brief private consultation with the attorneys about personal legal matters.

Lawyers in Libraries 2019 is FREE.
