Summary:

With so much misinformation online, helping patrons find up to date, credible sources of legal self-help information and forms can be challenging. This webinar will provide an overview of online legal information and self-help tools developed by the nonprofit legal aid community, including a national network of statewide legal information portals, many of which have content available in languages other than English. Presenters will also highlight resources available through many courts, law libraries and key federal resources, including online consumer protection resources.
