Boyd Partners with Local Nonprofit Groups for Fourth Annual Community Law Day

Sat, 08/24/2013

The intricacies of bankruptcy law, small claims procedures, and the family court process are among the topics to be discussed at this year's Community Law Day, a series of free legal education classes offered through the UNLV Boyd School of Law, on Aug. 24.

The classes are designed to cover specific areas of law that will help individuals understand court procedures, documentation requirements and changes to laws. Individuals who attend the classes may apply for pro bono assistance.

Community Law Day is co-sponsored by the UNLV Boyd School of Law, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, and Nevada Legal Services. The event is free and open to the public and will offer some courses in Spanish.

The UNLV Boyd School of Law, in partnership with Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada and Nevada Legal Services, has sponsored legal information classes the last 15 years and has helped over 45,000 people in the community.
