Legislature declares June Access to Justice Month; Courts schedule free family law clinics across the state.
The Mississippi Legislature has declared June as Access to Justice Month. Free family law clinics are expected to be conducted in every county in the state this year to assist poor people in resolving civil legal issues in Chancery Courts. The free clinics are intended to help those who can’t afford to hire lawyers to resolve matters such as divorce, custody, visitation, child support, emancipation, name change, adoption, guardianship and domestic abuse protective orders.
Nicole H. McLaughlin, executive director of the Access to Justice Commission, stopped by to share more information.
