New Michigan Online Legal Self-Help Center Provides Resources to the Public


A new online resource is now available to members of the public who want immediate information and more access to the justice system. The Michigan Online Legal Self-Help Center was recently launched by the State Bar's Libraries, Legal Research, and Legal Publications Committee. The website was created in response to a 2002 survey of law libraries showing a substantial need for such information.

Links on the page direct users to general articles on finding legal help; locating Michigan law libraries; researching law; and to other general Michigan law websites. In addition, pages provide more detailed information and links in the areas of family law, elder law, criminal law, wills and trusts, and landlord-tenant law.

Users should note the information provided is not a substitute for the services of an attorney, and does not constitute legal advice. To access this new website visit Click on Public Resources and Michigan Online Legal Self-Help Center.

Contributors to the project include committee members Sue Adamczak, Randy Davidson, Randy Foreman, Barb Garavaglia, Dan Kopka, Kim Koscielniak, and Kathy Vance.
