The Portland Public Library will be hosting a group of volunteer lawyers on Tuesday for a Law Day event to provide assistance to people in need and to talk about legal issues.

The event is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the library’s 5 Monument Square location.

Tuesday’s Law Day at the Portland Public Library is part of a weeklong series being held at libraries throughout the state. The series is organized by the Maine Justice Action Group Collaboration on Innovation, Technology and Equal Access to Justice; the Maine State Bar Association, the Maine Bar Foundation; the State of Maine Judicial Branch; and the Maine Justice Action Group.

Lawyers volunteering at the Portland Public Library in Portland will be Stan Tupper, Stephen Schwartz, Carrie Yardley, Andrew Edwards, Tamlyn Frederick, David Packard and Regan Sweeney.

People who attend the event will be able to meet with a lawyer based in their community and receive information about free resources, low-cost legal assistance and legal referrals. Some attendees may be able to have a brief private consultation with an attorney about personal legal matters.
