The Hawaiʻi State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is celebrating Law Week from Sunday, May 19 to Saturday 25, 2024 by helping educate the public about various areas of the law and offering free legal information.

The event has been celebrated annually in May since 1961, when Congress passed a joint resolution recognizing Law Day, USA. The legal line hotline exists to assist members of the public who may not have access to an attorney and need general advice or referrals to non-profit organizations that can assist with their legal problems.

During Law Week, the hotline runs from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. all week long, from Monday, May 20 to Friday, May 24, 2024. Call 808-537-1868 to speak to a lawyer. Additionally, the YLD has announced that an Ask-a-Lawyer booth will be set up at the Maui Sunday Market (65 W Kaʻahumanu Avenue) in Kahului from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 19.
