The clinic is a public service project of the Alaska Bar Association, Alaska Court System, and Alaska Legal Services Corporation, and was held at the Mountain View Boys & Girls Club.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., attorneys answer legal questions for free on MLK Day in communities across Alaska.  These clinics are for low income Alaskans with civil legal needs that include family, landlord-tenant, and public benefits matters.
