In conjunction with the Young Lawyers Division, the NCBA has held a “Statewide Service Day” to provide pro bono services since 2008. The day is highly promoted as a community service, and hopefully serves as a stepping stone towards getting more attorneys to become pro bono volunteers. The citizens of North Carolina are the beneficiaries of this event. This service, promoted as “Ask an Attorney Day” allows any North Carolinian to call a toll free number between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. that day to receive free legal advice from attorneys from all areas of practice who are set up at several call centers across the state.
