Clinics will be held on the fourth Monday of every month, from 6 to 7:30 pm.                  


January 23    “Understanding SSI and SSDI Disability  Benefits”

February 27   “Immigrant Family’s and Children’s Immigration Rights”

March 27       “Tenant’s Rights”

April 24         “Workers’/Employees’ Rights”

Prepare for your conversation with the lawyer:

  • Write a list of your specific questions for the lawyer, and
  • Bring any related paperwork, organized from most recent on the top to oldest at the bottom.

The aim of Lawyers in the Library is to help people who cannot afford private legal services by facilitating access to information from local attorneys serving pro bono.

First come, first served. Spanish language attorneys and/or interpreters may be available.

This program is presented free in conjunction with Roger Williams University School of Law, with participation and support from these community partners: The Pro Bono Collaborative, Center for Justice and Rhode Island Legal Services.
