Dozens of volunteer attorneys and legal experts will be on hand to teach the basics of the law and answer general legal questions. More than 400 people are expected to attend the half-day seminar, which offers classes in more than thirty subjects such as small business issues, identity theft, wills and estate planning, and family violence. The event is free and open to the public.
