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.

The beginning of autumn is upon us, and Legal Aid has a robust schedule of neighborhood-based clinics scheduled. The October clinic dates are listed below, and you can always view the full events calendar on our website.

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.

Legal Aid is participating in Cleveland Housing Court’s Resource Clinic scheduled for the evening of October 19. If you have questions about landlord-tenant laws or want to learn more about Cleveland’s Right to Counsel program – come chat with us! Learn more about the event on our website.

Volunteers are a critical part of Legal Aid’s work to close the justice gap. In honor of Pro Bono Month, throughout October we are offering several Continuing Legal Education programs for attorneys. Check out the training options on our website, and follow us on social media for stories highlighting the impact of pro bono work by volunteers.
