The Alaska Bar Association along with the Alaska Court System and the Alaska Legal Services Corporation will host a free legal clinic on Monday in honor of the late Martin Luther King Jr. in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau.

Free legal consultations and referrals in family law, landlord/tenant and public benefits will be available to the attendees on a first-come, first- served basis. This is the Alaska Bar Association's fourth year hosting the MLK Day event.

The Alaska Bar Association has followed the national lead of making this a 'day on, not a day off' as a powerful way of building community and providing service," Krista Scully, pro bono director of the Alaska Bar Association, said in press release. “
