LAAC Armchair Trainings Pathways to Justice Series Debt and Debt Collection SD

All materials for this training are available at this link:
laaconline.egnyte.com/dl/vDAC0a4IDh
Presented by:
Brian Bilford, Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County
Jennifer Phan, Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County
Debt is perhaps the only near-universal problem for the client communities served by legal services organizations. This presentation will summarize several new debt-related efforts at Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County (NLSLA). Potential services to be discussed include: 1) Helping clients who have not yet been sued for their debts to assert their rights by slowing or ceasing pre-litigation debt collection efforts; 2) Providing information and advice on bankruptcy and other potential resolutions to major debt problems, 3) Presenting “answer workshops” to help debtors who have been sued understand the law suit process and decide whether it is appropriate for them to file an answer. The workshop will have a particular focus on the mechanics of these NLSLA programs, which operate largely on a self-help model with courthouse resources and assistance.
This webinar is intended to provide legal information, not legal advice for the purposes of training only practicing attorneys. The legal information in this webinar is not intended to be a substitute for seeking personalized legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your jurisdiction. Further, we do not intend to create an attorney-client relationship with any listener.

Help for Self Represented Domestic Violence Victims in Family Court

Most family court litigants must pursue their cases without counsel, and this burden is even heavier for survivors of domestic violence, many of whom do not disclose the violence to the court or court-related practitioners. The presence of domestic violence complicates the family court case, and the impact of trauma on the family and on survivors’ capacity to manage and effectively pursue their cases must be understood for these litigants to have full access to the courts. This webinar will help those who work with survivors increase their capacity to assist survivors in successfully seeking relief in family court.

1 hour of general CLE.

From the Justice for All legal aid campaign: http://www.justice-for-all.org.uk/

The Government are taking legal aid away from the people who need it the most and removing access to justice for about 650,000 people a year. It’s civil engineering with the poorest and most vulnerable members of our society left to suffer without being able to access their rights. Legal remedy will only be available to those with the money to pay for it
