Utah Celebrates Pro Bono Week
October 24-30 is Pro Bono Week, celebrating free legal assistance to people who can't afford to hire attorneys and recognizing those who provide such services.
There are a variety of free legal clinics for the public being offered throughout the state during Pro Bono Week, including the new Debtor's Counseling Clinic and a one-time legal clinic being held at the Utah Valley University Library the evening of October 26th.

There are several events scheduled for attorneys, including an opening ceremony, a free film screening, a pro bono social, and a one-hour CLE on Family Law Basics.
