Hello from Legal Aid!

As July winds down and we move into August, our Legal Aid calendar is full of advice clinics and events. If you see us tabling at a community resource fair or back-to-school event, please make sure to say hello!

We encourage you to circulate this information with your networks, and reach out if you have any questions.

Student Loan Information – Virtual Drop-in Sessions
The federal student loan payment pause will be ending soon. To help prepare for the return of repayment, Legal Aid will host virtual ‘drop-in’ sessions this summer to answer questions and provide information. Jump in any time during the hour to talk with one of our student loan experts, or join for the entire time to hear others’ questions. Sessions will be held on the first Thursday of August and September. Register today:
