Ask-a-Lawyer is part of Law Week which began on Monday, May 22.
During Law Week, The Young Lawyers Division of the Hawaiʻi State Bar Association holds a yearly event that seeks to provide free legal advice through both in-person and virtual events.
The events take place across the state, and this year’s Law Week ends with the Ask-a-Lawyer events.

The free information is for the public on a variety of legal topics.
