'Call a Lawyer expands Bar's public information efforts

A new weekly public information
program, Call a Lawyer, was ini-
tiated Jan. 26 by KOLN/KGIN-TV,
in cooperation with the NSBA. Call
a Lawyer is a 12-minute segment of
The Morning Show. It begins with
a brief discussion of a legal topic,
followed by a viewer call-in feature.
Each program focuses on a different
legal topic. The first show dealt with
bankruptcy; February programs
covered various aspects of divorce
and family law, with March pro-
grams focusing on the court system
and jury duty. The Call a Lawyer
segment is on each Monday.
One attorney is selected by the Bar
for each program. The Morning

which in turn has generated requests
for several hundred copies to be
used with discussion groups planned
at various libraries. The Nebraska
Association of Retired Federal
Employees will hand out one to each
person attending their convention in
May. Articles in newspapers through-
out the state have generated requests
for hundreds of individual copies.
Nebraska ETV is also offering the
brochure in Choice magazine and
on-air promotions.
The brochure includes the com-
plete text of the Constitution and
amendments, as well as a bibliog-
