Public Service & Legal Services

Addressing the need for and availability of a wide variety of public and legal services to those in need.

The City Bar is dedicated to ensuring that the public has easy access to a wide range of services to address their legal issues. In addition to running a number of programs that provide direct legal services for low-income individuals and communities in need, our committees address the legal and policy issues surrounding pro bono work by attorneys and advocates for efforts to provide legal services to those in need.
