Law Day Benefits Citizens - Like You!

For the past five years as part of the celebration of Law Day, Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation in conjunction with the Atlanta Bar Association has held a Healthcare Directives fair. The venue is chosen by the Atlanta Bar and AVLF provides the volunteers. Healthcare Directives are provided to the general public and any interested staff members of the chosen venue.

For Law Day 2010 the event was held at the Fulton County Government Center Atrium. Six volunteer attorneys and 14 paralegals executed 49 Healthcare Directives and provided information for 17 potential Wills clients.

Law Day 2010 in Atlanta also included a fun day in Piedmont Park, special programs for Fulton County State and Superior Court jurors, greeters at the Fulton Court Complex, and a reception for the outgoing and incoming Fulton Superior Court Chief Judges.
