Law clinics offered to the self-represented

Law clinics to assist self-represented litigants are being offered by the Olmsted County Law Library in partnership with Legal Assistance of Olmsted County.

The law clinics are an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a volunteer attorney for up to 30 minutes to ask questions, discuss options and get legal advice. The volunteer attorney provides only 30 minutes of free legal time, and does not become the attorney representing the case.

Clinics are scheduled between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Tuesday, and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Both clinics will center on family law — things such as divorce, legal separation, annulment, visitation, custody, child support, adoption and prenuptial agreements.

Space is limited. To sign up for one of the clinics, call the law librarian at 328-7605. At that time, you'll be told where to come for your appointment. People who cannot be scheduled for one of the October clinics, or who wish assistance with another topic, will be put on a waiting list. People with imminent court or filing dates may be given priority.
