Two years after we started the original LAWLINE in 1978, several state bar associations , coordinating through the ABA , began tape recorded "Lawline" programs that provided audio information tapes by telephone. Some were good, some were bad, but they were all a step in the right direction, because they provided inexpensive consumer access to basic legal information.

Since we were already referring callers to state and local bar associations, law firms, law school clinics and community service organizations, we added these recorded programs to our referral list. Before long we were answering several hundred questions each week from callers who
did not understand the tapes. We have found that most persons have the same problem with the information on the net. We try to clarify that information for you by answering your questions, and this is why we focus on live person to person communication.

After 22 years we are still the only "lawline" that answers calls live on a daily basis. Most of the bar associations only have their lawyers "live" online or by phone for a limited time on a weekly or monthly schedule. It is in this regard that we believe they could do better .

In 1993 , in anticipation of the internet, we coordinated with other lawyers to help develop 1-900-call law for private consultation and detailed information on certain consumer and business topics. 900 call law is available to bar associations, and law school clinics on a "cost only" basis to add-on to their existing services. It is also available to lawyers and law firms who are also willing to answer free legal questions as part of our Lawline Network.

Today there are several public and private "lawlines" across the United States, as well as in Canada, England, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. To take a tour, Click here .
