Community legal education is a core part of our mission. SLLS offers “Know Your Rights” workshops, staffs outreach fairs, and participates in other community events to ensure that people have the knowledge they need to protect their legal rights. “Know Your Rights” sessions educate seniors, opportunity youth, domestic violence survivors, and the community at large about topics like:

  • Landlord-Tenant Tenant’s Rights
  • How to Avoid Predatory Lending
  • Tax Issues for Small Business Owners
  • Legal Protections for Domestic Violence Survivors
  • Family Law Matters
  • Healthcare Access Issues
  • Wills and Successions
  • Expungements and Employment Rights
