The Alabama State Bar Volunteer Lawyers Program provides volunteer-based, client-focused legal services to primarily low-income residents of Alabama who would not otherwise receive legal assistance. Volunteers provide legal assistance through both direct representation and through a variety of legal advice and legal assistance clinics. The legal advice clinics offer free, limited legal advice and referral to Alabama residents with legal issues who might otherwise have no access to the legal system. Attorney volunteers meet with individuals to analyze problems, identify community resources and offer legal advice on a variety of topics.
The VLP in partnership with the Tuscaloosa County Bar Association hold a monthly legal advice clinic on the third Thursday of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Tuscaloosa County Library (main branch).
