Through LSSM’s community education and outreach efforts, individuals learn about their legal rights and responsibilities, enabling them to avoid legal problems and understand how to resolve them when they occur.
LSSM also provides educational programs and workshops for its social service partners who are often the low-income population’s only link to mainstream society. These trainings help our partners identify situations where legal counsel is necessary, and they know where to turn when legal help is needed.
Pro Se Clinics are designed to help LSSM clients represent themselves in certain family law cases. These Clinics are held throughout the year in Springfield, MO. Participants are trained on court proceedings and required forms for their legal matters.
