The Ben F. Jones Chapter takes great pride in its
continuing partnership with Memphis Area Legal
Services. We always encourage all our members
- and the legal community at large - to take advantage
of the many pro
bono opportunities available through MALS programming.
Attorney of the Day is a program
through which MALS provides two local private attorneys
who volunteer their time on Thursday afternoons at 1:00
p.m. to advise pro se litigants about procedures,
defenses, and possible referrals. The program is run
with the generous cooperation of the Memphis Bar
Association’s Access to Justice Committee, The Ben F.
Jones Chapter of the NBA, and General Sessions Judge Phyllis Gardner.
MALS Saturday Free Legal Clinic
The MALS Saturday Free Legal Clinics operate as an expansion of the Attorney of the Day
Program, in that volunteer attorneys donate their time
to assist walk-in clients with general legal matters,
free of charge. The clinics are held at local
churches and open to the public. Pro bono
attorneys offer assistance or referrals for matters such
as landlord/tenant disputes, predatory lending, basic
personal injury cases, family law, and other legal
inquiries. Please contact MALS for the date
and location of the next Saturday Free Legal Clinic.
If you would like to volunteer, please visit the MALS website for enrollment forms, contact information, and more details.
