Free Legal Clinic for Homeless and Transitional Youth by Project Street Youth
On Friday, January 23, 2015, a free legal clinic for homeless and transitional youth will be held. Attorneys volunteering their time will be available for free consultation regarding legal issues facing homeless and transitional youth, including public assistance, government benefits, criminal matters, and credit and consumer matters.
The event will be held at the Richland Library Main, C. David Warren Gallery, 1431 Assembly Street, Columbia, SC. The clinic will open at 9:30 a.m. and close at 12:30 p.m.
“I am proud that the South Carolina Bar has adopted Project Street Youth, this year’s national public service initiative by the ABA Young Lawyers Division,” said Beth Palmer, an attorney at Rosen Hagood in Charleston and Director of Public Service for the ABA Young Lawyers Division. “We are excited to serve this very deserving population during this year’s SC Bar Annual Convention.”
Disclaimer: Those seeking assistance will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Attorneys are available for brief advice and referral only and do NOT represent those seeking advice. If legal representation is required, clinic attorneys may refer individuals to Legal Services or other service providers as necessary.
If you have questions regarding the event, please contact Beth Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
