Join the Access to Justice Committee for a free legal self-help clinic on the first Tuesday of the month. This program is ideal for customers who do not have legal representation and need help navigating various legal issues via remote internet access. Space is limited. Registration required at least 24 hours prior to clinic. Call 303-405-3298 to register.

Important update for Tuesday, April 7: Despite the COVID-19 closures at Anythink Libraries, the free legal self-help clinic will be held as scheduled. We're able to do this and keep customers safe because the volunteer attorneys already work remotely.  As a work-around, instead of coming to a local Anythink branch, the volunteer attorney will call registered customers directly.
