Hurricane Katrina Access to Aid Resource For Lawyers Wanting to Volunteer


To date, over two thousand evacuees have sought shelter in Michigan. After their immediate needs for food and safe haven have been met, many will face wide ranging legal issues. We know that even in the best of times, there is a great, unmet need for legal services for low-income families, and Michigan lawyers have historically been in the forefront of support for legal aid and Access to Justice programs.

The State Bar of Michigan is calling on its members to donate their time and expertise to those in need. Volunteer your professional legal services now to help evacuees in Michigan. If your pro bono contribution of service is not a reasonable option at this time, please contribute to the Access to Justice Katrina appeal so that the legal services providers who will be asked to address legal needs of evacuees in their communities will have critically needed financial support.
