Educate the Public About Legal Issues
People have more success navigating the legal system and solving their problem after learning more about their legal issue. We manage the www.LawHelpMN.org website for the public. This includes publishing fact sheets and booklets, managing a library of other legal education materials on LawHelpMN.org, and partnering with the State Law Library to offer LiveChat navigation assistance to LawHelpMN.org users.
State Support houses the Education for Justice program, which publishes hundreds of fact sheets in English, Spanish, Hmong, Somali, and many in other languages. We use clear language to convey legal information in many areas of civil law including housing, government benefits, youth and education, seniors, consumer, family, immigration, work, and taxes. We also publish booklets about family, housing, and consumer topics with more detailed information. These resources are all available online and in print, and are used throughout the state by legal aid offices, courthouses, law libraries, and public libraries. Each year we partner with subject matter experts to review and update this content.
