Public Legal Web Sites
AZ Law Help
AZLawHelp.org, is a legal resource to educate the public and answer general legal questions. The goal of the site is to provide access to justice for all Arizonans by delivering legal information and valuable resources within an easy to understand framework on the internet. AZLawHelp.org is a project of the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education in partnership with Southern Arizona Legal Aid Inc., Community Legal Services, Inc., DNA People's Legal Services, Inc., and the William E. Morris Institute for Justice with support from the Legal Services Corporation.
Law for Seniors
LawForSeniors.org is a legal resource to educate those who have reached their "golden years," family members, and caretakers. It was designed to help empower Arizona seniors by putting answers within their reach. Both seniors and caretakers can get quick access to legal information, links to law-related resources, and answers to questions about the legal process. Whether facing eviction, understanding health benefits, elder abuse prevention, or consumer scams, getting information and knowing your rights provide the first line of defense. www.LawForSeniors.org and the Law for Seniors brochure are a project of the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education in partnership with the Arizona Supreme Court.
Law for Kids
LawForKids.org is America's first stand alone web site dedicated to teaching children about the law in a manner that kids can read quickly and understand easily. It allows our youth to know just what the law means for them and understand that they are responsible for the decisions they make. The Site was created by the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education with the specific goal of educating Arizona's youth, their parents, communities and schools to increase their knowledge about youth laws and to encourage law-abiding behavior. Also provided on the website are homework help, downloadable lesson plans for teachers, and links to teaching & parenting resources.
LFK is made possible through funding from the Arizona Supreme Court's Juvenile Crime Reduction Fund, composed of surcharges on fines paid by those convicted of breaking the law.
Volunteer opportunities with this program are available all year: Attorneys and Judges are needed to provide legal information (NOT advice) to those posting questions on the website. AZLawHelp.org Volunteer attorneys and judges spend up to 2 hours each month answering questions about the law, translating the law into understandable terms or reviewing answers researched and drafted by law students. Participation as a website volunteer is conducted primarily over e-mail or directly with the website.
