Following a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck the state late last year, the Alaska Supreme Court has issued an order allowing out-of-state lawyers to provide volunteer legal services to low-income Alaskans affected by the earthquake. The ABA Journal reports that the Alaskan legal community hopes to have the participation from at least one lawyer in every state. Lawyers can volunteer at a time and place convenient to them through ABA Free Legal Answers, an online portal that remotely connects pro bono lawyers with low-income individuals. The Alaska version of the site now accepts out-of-state registrations.
