Help Support Making Legal Stuff Booklets Available in Spanish
For over 20 years, the HCBA has produced Legal Stuff, a 50-page booklet designed to answer general questions about the law and explain legal rights. Legal Stuff has been used as a teaching tool in high schools and as a personal guide to individuals who are navigating legal situations. Over 100,000 copies have been provided free of charge to schools, community groups, and new citizens. The Hennepin County Bar Foundation is seeking funds to translate Legal Stuff into Spanish to make the booklet accessible to more individuals throughout our community.  Help support this project and increase the reach of this valued educational and community resource.
