In 2014 Florida Chief Justice Labarga established the Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice as a response to the unmet civil legal needs of low and moderate income Floridians. The FL Access to Justice Commission seeks to further the mission of improving access to civil justice by creating strong collaboration among various groups. As public librarians who serve the public and help connect patrons with resources, we are stakeholders in their mission. Public librarians are often the first point of contact for someone seeking answers to a legal question. This webinar is designed to help public librarians understand the process of basic legal research and effectively develop and use the legal information located within their libraries. Additionally, this webinar will highlight some of Florida’s free and low cost legal resources and services.
