    Welcome to the Lawyer in the Library Program at LA Law Library! This program is designed to provide you a brief consultation with an attorney to provide general legal information, referrals to public agencies or legal
    service providers or a referral to a Lawyer Referral Service. If you already have an attorney, we will not be able to help you. This service is for self-represented individuals only.

    The volunteer attorney assigned to you is not “your attorney” and does not represent you. Rather, the attorney will provide brief legal information during today’s clinic. Similarly, LA Law Library Staff do not provide legal advice and there is no attorney-client relationship between you and any person at the LA Law Library. LA Law Library and its volunteer lawyers will not go to court, appear at any legal proceedings, file documents or take any action other than giving information and advice at the time of your Law Library visit. You should consult with your own attorney if you want personalized advice or strategy or to be represented by an
    attorney in court.

    Communications between you and the attorney(s) with whom you speak will be treated as confidential. However, LA Law Library or the attorney(s) with whom you consult may provide information and assistance to other litigants or individuals whose interests are not aligned with yours.

    You must be present in the reading area when your name is called or you will lose your slot. While you wait, please keep your conversations quiet and turn off your cell phone. If you disturb other people in the library, you will be asked to leave and you will forfeit your appointment. No recording of your meeting with the attorneys of the Lawyers in the Library Program is permitted.

    By signing below, you consent to being photographed during the Lawyers in the Library program and consent to copies of your photograph being used anonymously in LA Law Library promotional materials including, but not limited to, in its website, and/or Facebook page. You further consent to your story and the services provided to you being used anonymously by LA Law Library to conduct outreach about the Library and promote the Lawyers in the Library program.

    LA Law Library is not responsible for the content or accuracy of any legal information or advice you may receive during the program or the outcome of your case or matter.

    I have read this Disclosure or have had it read to me. I understand this document and hereby release the LA Law Library and any attorneys present from any claim, liability or damages arising out of or in connection with receiving information or assistance under this program.

  • We invite you to participate in our most popular program! Here are a few things you should know:

    - Attorneys will provide procedural advice about filling out forms but will not fill out your forms.

    - We do our best to facilitate helpful consultations but cannot provide guaranties, given the popularity of the program, the dependence on volunteers and the broad range of issues.

    - Each person is allowed three visits per year, but no more than two in person. Missed appointments will not count as a session.

    - This program is not a substitute for legal representation.
