Webinar Overview:
During the current crisis, your patrons are likely to have many legal needs and questions. They might be dealing with a foreclosure, unemployment, a divorce, or they might want to prepare for end of life legal concerns, just in case. Unfortunately, finding reliable legal information and free legal forms is notoriously difficult. To make matters worse, Ohio's legal landscape is one of the most convoluted in the nation - it's not just that different counties might do things differently from each other, but villages and cities sometimes have their own rules and requirements too. Ohio Legal Help is an authoritative and free website that provides accurate and local legal information to the public. Content is vetted by attorneys, and many common legal forms are available. In this webinar, you will learn more about this amazing resource and how you can use it to help your patrons.

Learning Objective:
Learn how to find reliable information for patrons on common civil legal problems

Intended Audience:
Adult Services, Reference Services, General staff
