Legal Aid announces a Free Legal Aid Walk-in Clinic on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at the Bartholomew County Public Library, located at 536 Fifth Street in Columbus. The clinic will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. The free clinic is for low-income residents.

The Legal Aid Clinic and Pro Bono Program utilizes local volunteer attorneys, offering free legal consultations to low-income individuals for the provision of legal advice and assistance in furtherance of equal access to justice within our community who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

There is no need to register in advance.
