PORTLAND, Maine — The annual Race Judicata, a 5K race-walk along the city’s Back Cove, will begin at 1:30 p.m Saturday.

It is sponsored by the Maine Law Student Bar Association. The race raises money for the University of Maine School of Law’s Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic.

At the clinic, third-year law students provide legal services to low-income clients. The student attorneys are specially licensed by the state and federal courts and they work under the close supervision of law school professors.

Advance registration is $15, $20 on the day of the race.

For more information, contact Maine Law student and race organizer Chris Harmon at charmon126@gmail.com or visit www.active.com/running/portland-me/race-judicata-5k-race-and-walk-2012.
