Join MLLS at the Marion-Polk Lawyers’ Campaign for Equal Justice Luncheon!
Wednesday, September 17, 2014, 12:00-1:00 pm
Willamette Heritage Center, aka the Mission Mill Museum
Help us support the Campaign for Equal Justice by sitting with Mary Leonard Law Society at the Annual Marion-Polk Lawyer’s Campaign for Equal Justice Luncheon. There is no cost to attend; the luncheon is an excellent opportunity to socialize while learning more about the important work that legal aid is doing in Marion and Polk Counties and across the state.
While the lunch is free, we do encourage you to consider a contribution t0 the Campaign for Equal Justice. Supporting legal aid is a cause that MLLS members are passionate about and that aligns closely with our organizational goals of ensuring justice and equality in our community. Poverty in Oregon has increased by 61.5% since 2000, and we are currently 8th in the nation for poverty growth. Together, we can help make sure that our neighbors have fair and equal access to justice, regardless of income.
Please let us know if you are available to sit at an MLLS table by contacting us at email@example.com

In collaboration with the Oregon New Lawyers Division (ONLD), the Marion County New Lawyers Division will be coordinating a Wills for Heroes clinic here in Marion-Polk County. This clinic will provide essential legal documents free of charge to first responders, including simple wills and powers of attorney. The Marion-Polk County clinic will follow other successful clinics held in Multnomah County and Washington County last year.
There is a great need for this service in our community, and in order to plan a successful program, we are reaching out first to find out who is interested in volunteering at a clinic this fall. All interested attorneys are welcome, new attorneys, practicing attorneys, and retired attorneys. We anticipate a lot of interest from first responders for these services and want to plan accordingly. The goal is to organize the clinic to meet the needs in our community as well as provide an excellent opportunity for lawyers to give back. We are also looking for volunteers to serve as witnesses and notaries. It is also a great opportunity for law students to observe.
If you are interested in volunteering for a 1 day or ½ day clinic or in helping plan, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
