“Lawyers in the Library” offers free 20-minute consultations at the Sacramento County Public Law Library every Monday night beginning at 5:15 p.m. Any Sacramento County resident, or any self-represented litigant with a case in Sacramento County Superior Court, is eligible for the Lawyers in the Library program.
A lottery to set the appointments begins at 5:15 p.m. The appointments themselves start at 5:50 pm on the 1st and 3rd Mondays, and at 5:30 on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Mondays of the month. A Spanish-speaking attorney will be available to assist customers on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.
The “Lawyers in the Library” program is ideal for those who have a legal issue that is outside of the scope of services of the Sacramento County Public Law Library’s Civil Self-Help Center.
The aim of “Lawyers in the Law Library” is to contribute to the Sacramento legal community’s effort to help people who cannot afford private legal services by coordinating and facilitating brief access to information and referral from local attorneys serving pro bono.
We hope the “Lawyers in the Library” program will increase community recognition of Sacramento County Public Law Library’s role in providing free access to legal information for over 100 years.
