City Bar’s Legal Referral Service Kicks Off Law Week with Free Legal Fairs

The City Bar’s Legal Referral Service, together with the New York State Courts’ Access to Justice Community Outreach Program, has been offering free legal information fairs around New York City this week in observance of National Law Day. The first fair was yesterday at Brooklyn Borough Hall, followed by Queens Civil Court today. The annual events provide residents with the opportunity to learn about their legal rights, discover whether they have a legal issue, and when to consult with a lawyer. This year marks the 20th anniversary of City Bar participation.  The fairs continue in Manhattan tomorrow (New York County Civil Court, 111 Centre Street) and the Bronx on Friday (Bronx Supreme Court, 851 Grand Concourse), both 11 AM – 2 PM. Lawyers will be available to provide basic information and advice on such issues as landlord/tenant disputes, immigration, discrimination, starting a small business, estate planning, small claims court, and divorce and family law.
