The OLC hosted a free webinar on Thurs, July 9 with Ohio Legal Help’s Executive Director Susan Choe and Content Manager Rachel Harris. The webinar explained how public libraries can utilize the Ohio Legal Help website to find reliable legal information on common civil legal problems.
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. This webinar explores the resource and how you and your staff can use it to help your patrons.
