Needs of the Elderly Committee/Utah State Bar Senior Legal Clinic Program in Salt Lake County
Volunteer lawyers meet with senior citizens at no cost at senior citizen centers and some senior subsidized housing units throughout Salt Lake County. Volunteers meet one-on-one with clients for 20-minute consultations over a two-hour period. The goal is not to provide in-depth legal representation, but to determine whether the individual has a legal problem and then to identify potential legal services to address the problem. For more information, contact your local senior citizen center or the Pro Bono Coordinator at the Utah State Bar, 801-257-5516.
