Law Day

In celebration of National Law Day on May 1st, the New York City Bar Legal Referral Service, together with the New York State Courts Access to Justice Program, hosts a free legal information fair. At Law Day, you have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about your legal rights and how to be proactive in addressing legal issues you confront
  • Pick up helpful brochures, forms, booklets, and other materials that address a variety of common legal questions and topics
  • Talk with experienced lawyers free of charge, who can help you:
    • Discover whether you have a legal issue
    • Find out whether you need a lawyer
    • Figure out if you should seek help from a local, state, or federal agency and, if so, which one
    • Learn about other legal services providers – often also at Law Day – which handle your specific issue

Community leaders and representatives from the New York State Courts, local bar associations, and social service organizations participate and are available to answer questions and provide information about their services.

At our Law Day booth you can find helpful information on these topics:

  • Landlord/Tenant Law
  • Consumer Law
  • Estate Planning/Elder Law
  • Foreclosure, Bankruptcy Prevention
  • Small Claims Court
  • Divorce and Family Law
  • And more!
