Paralegals Are First Step in Pro Bono Efforts

Beginning this month, students and graduates of the paralegal program at Casper College in Casper, Wyo. will be the first step for many in obtaining pro bono legal representation. The students and graduates will conduct a half-hour interview with each potential client, then forward the information to a licensed attorney, who will review the information. If the case qualifies, it will be assigned to an attorney who will represent the client pro bono.

This free service is available to Casper College students, employees, and those participating in GED, lifelong learning, and continuing education programs. Services are limited to civil matters, including simple wills, adoptions, name changes, uncontested divorces, small claims, family violence protection orders, landlord-tenant issues, and contract issues.
