PROGRAMMING

M.A.L.S. VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

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.

  • MALS Attorney of the Day

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.
