Some of our legal information tools were created for community workers serving vulnerable or marginalized groups, or people facing serious hardship.
Finding and Providing Reliable Legal Information
These four information sheets provide community workers with the tools to assist clients in finding free and low-cost legal information and representation.
They also help community workers understand the difference between legal information and legal advice, as well as their responsibilities when providing legal information to members of the public.
This one-page poster summarizes the differences between legal information and legal advice.
This short video explains the difference between legal information and legal advice and why it matters. It features an interactive exercise to help illustrate how they differ in practice.
