Bar Association launches online legal advice service as an alternative to LawTalk
SEOUL, March 3 (Korea Bizwire) — The Korean Bar Association (KBA) launched the operation of its own legal advice platform after conflict with the LawTalk private legal advice app.
The KBA and the Seoul Bar Association announced on Wednesday that their lawyer information center “My Lawyer” launched a beta service on Feb. 28 and will officially start operating at the end of this month after a month of consideration of public comments.
The service provides users with information about lawyers verified by both bars. Users can also search for lawyers by category and region.
If users leave messages on the platform’s message board, the platform can put them in touch with lawyers who are interested in their cases.
The platform also has a special section where lawyers can promote the cases they have won and publicize their performance.
“With a focus on ensuring the public value of legal services and maintaining the orderly acceptance of services, this platform will provide services free of charge to all lawyers and citizens,” the Seoul Bar Association said.
