Law Library: Self-Help Information
Legal Self-Help Center
The free, online legal self-help center will help you find information about your legal rights and responsibilities, videos on what happens in court and some legal documents and forms which you can fill out and file.
You can use the legal self-help center online or in the Law Library. If you visit the Law Library, a navigator will be available to help you use the legal self-help center to find the information that you need.
