The Austin Bar Foundation is seeking volunteers for its newest initiative, Austin Bar in Action. According to a release from the Austin Bar, while civil filings in the Travis County are down, pro se filings have increased, and beginning November 1, self-represented litigants in the uncontested docket will be required to go to the Travis County Law Library & Self-Help Center before they will be allowed in court.

To account for this expected increase in attendees, the Austin Bar is encouraging volunteer attorneys to be at the center to answer questions and help fill out forms.

Attorneys interested in volunteering at the Self-Help Center, located in the Ned Granger Building at 314 W. 11th St., in Austin, or wanting to learn more about Austin Bar in Action, should contact Doug Lawrence at (512) 472-0279, ext. 100.
