(Reprinted from the CRIMSON issue of March 14, 1913.)

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

An important step not only in the work of Phillips Brooks House but in the history of the Harvard Law School, will be taken next week when the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau will be established. This Bureau will undertake without charge to give legal advice, to draw up contracts and other papers, and to appear in court in behalf of clients. All this service will be free to anyone who cares to use it. Whenever the matter is too serious to be handled by the Bureau itself, a capable lawyer will be employed.

The Harvard Legal Aid Bureau will be conducted by 25 men of high standing in the second and third-year classes in the Law School. An office will be rented in Central Square, and will be kept open two hours in the afternoon and two in the evening.
