Crosby Legal Seminars is the brain child of New Jersey attorney Jacqueline E. Crosby, Esq., who formed the public legal education company in 2009 as a response to the economic downturn, recognizing the general public’s increasing inaccessibility to legal representation and the need for public legal education. “Many individuals in need of legal assistance are not able to afford a lawyer, but might not qualify for legal aid either” says Crosby “and it’s not just the indigent anymore. More and more of middle class Americans are representing themselves in legal proceedings, and usually not with great results. Public legal education fills that gap by empowering individuals with legal knowledge.
Crosby Legal Seminar’s upcoming legal seminar Legal Research 101: A How to Course for the Non-Lawyer will run from February through May at Mt. Olive Community School in Budd Lake, New Jersey. To register, go to www.crosbylegalseminars.com.
