Law Week - In conjunction with the ABA YLD, the HSBA YLD plans various activities for both the public and its fellow members of the HSBA. Volunteer lawyers staff Legal Line Clinics to provide in-person free legal services to the community all over Oahu and the neighbor islands at various shopping centers and other public locations. In addition to the Legal Line Clinics, various other activities may be planned, including a Law Day fair, workshops and other programs.
We invite you to join the YLD as a volunteer for our upcoming Law Week Program. The Law Week program consists of two components: the KHON2 Action Lines during May 1st-5th, and Law Day on Saturday, May 6th on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii Island.
KHON2 Action Lines:
Dates: Monday, May 1st – Friday, May 5th.
Time: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: KHON2 Studio at 88 Piikoi St., Honolulu, Hawaii 96814.
Description: Each day will feature a different area of law.
Monday, May 1st, Consumer Protection/Bankruptcy Law
Tuesday, May 2nd, Family Law
Wednesday, May 3rd, Elder Care/Estate Planning
Thursday, May 4th, Immigration Law
Friday, May 5th, Landlord/Tenant Law
A binder with references and contact information where volunteers may direct callers for further assistance and information will be at the studio. This program is similar to the YLD's Legal Lines program through which volunteers provide general legal information to callers.
