Our final webinar in the series will highlight innovative, technology-enabled collaborations between legal aid programs and public and public law libraries in their communities to connect people with legal information. Panelists from legal aid programs and libraries in several states will discuss why and how they forged these partnerships and how they work. We will also provide nuts and bolts resources to replicate these and similar partnerships in other communities, and potential funding opportunities to seed them. We will also discuss opportunities for library involvement in project advisory groups and state commissions.

These webinars are free to public library and public law library staff, as well as stakeholders from the legal aid, court and access to justice communities. Attendees are welcome to join for the entire series or attend individual webinars on topics of interest. Recordings and presentation materials will be made available online afterwards.
