The Maryland People’s Law Library (www.peoples-law.org) is a great legal information and self-help website maintained by the Maryland State Law Library. This centralized website provides users with access to summaries of the law organized by subject matter, links to primary and secondary resources, referrals for legal services, and overviews of the legal process and legal research process. Written in plain English, it is an approachable resource for non-attorneys and attorneys alike and invaluable to many self-represented litigants.
Dave Pantzer, Esq., the Web Content Coordinator of the Maryland People’s Law Library, will be offering a training session on Legal Writing in Plain English. This training and pro bono opportunity will assist participants with improving their writing skills and discovering pro bono opportunities with the People’s Law Library.
Here are the details.
