As part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, Tulane Law School students will help prepare tax returns for New Orleans-area residents who couldn’t otherwise afford it, according to a news release issued by the school.

The program, done in coordination with the law school’s pro bono program, will run for ten Saturdays starting this weekend.

For more information, read the release below:

Clinics are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 25; Feb. 1, 8, 15 and 22; March 15, 22 and 29; and April 5 and 12. The location is Tulane’s Weinmann Hall, 6329 Freret St., Room 110.
