LEGAL AID OF NC - COVID-19 AND THE LAW VIDEOS

In addition to the weekly clinics, Legal Aid of NC has created other live and recorded videos that have information about current topics that are affecting our clients during the pandemic. They have animated videos that answer specific questions in about 3 minutes or less, recorded videos that provide more depth on a topic, and live videos during which we present on a topic and answer general questions on Facebook.

Here is more information about accessing their resources during this time:
