MLAO: Get involved!

Volunteering has never been so easy. With Minnesota Legal Advice Online (MLAO) (, you can help increase access to justice for all Minnesotans on your schedule. MLAO is a virtual legal clinic: Low-income clients sign up and post a question, and volunteer attorneys provide legal advice online. It works just like an email conversation. You choose which questions you want to answer and how much you want to volunteer.

You can volunteer from anywhere, whenever it’s convenient for you. It’s limited scope representation with malpractice coverage, and you can keep track of your volunteer hours for CLE credit or North Star Lawyer certification. A new site design makes the site easy and fun to use. Sign up today
at the MLAO website.
