The event will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Akron Bar Association, 57 S. Broadway St. in Akron.

The Ohio Justice Bus provides technology to help address the legal needs of underserved people and is aimed at improving financial security, health and safety.

Domestic court is collaborating with the Summit County Child Support Enforcement Agency, Community Legal Aid, the Victim Assistant Program and Asian Services in Akron.

Attorneys are needed to assist with the event. Anyone interested may contact Paul Henry, the court’s community outreach director, at 330-643-7845 or phenry@drcourt.org.

Domestic court plans to host the justice bus on a quarterly basis, with the next event expected to be in June.
