We provided this update on local events, community updates, and other newsworthy items to our partners and public officials.

If you are on-staff at a local organization or government agency, please email us with a request to join the mailing list. Include your name, title, organization and email in the note. You will then begin receiving Legal Aid's bi-weekly updates.

Summer is in full swing! Legal Aid staff and volunteers are busy with a full schedule of neighborhood-based clinics. In the coming weeks we are hosting clinics in East Cleveland, Kirtland, Oberlin, Ashtabula, and in the Clark-Fulton and Hough neighborhoods.

We continue to host regular Expungement Clinics – for those who need assistance sealing a criminal record. Call 888-817-3777 to schedule an Expungement Clinic appointment.

Below also is an updated calendar of our events - please share this information widely! We encourage folks to come speak with us at an in-person clinic for free legal advice about civil legal issues related to shelter, safety, consumer rights, education, work, and more.
