Wake Forest Law Professor Kate Mewhinney will be among the N.C. lawyers who is giving freely of their time and talent on Friday, March 1, as participants in the North Carolina Bar Association’s sixth annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day.
Volunteer attorneys will provide free legal information from eight call centers across the state from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Call center locations, sponsors and phone numbers are as follows:

Members of the public are reminded they can call any of the toll free numbers in any part of the state. Also, please note that personal visits are not permitted and calls to the call center’s normal phone numbers cannot be transferred.
The statewide service project coincides with the NCBA’s 4ALL campaign to provide civil legal aid to the poor. The event was first held in 2008 during the term of NCBA President Janet Ward Black of Greensboro and has since taken on a life of its own and hundreds of volunteers gather annually to provide free legal information to thousands of North Carolinians.
The 2013 4ALL Statewide Service Day is led by Stephanie Crosby and John Lindley III.
