Free Legal Information Forum at CAU Money Smart Week,” Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at the Clark Atlanta University Bishop Cornelius P. Henderson Student Center.

COMMUniversity, which represents a commitment by Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Spelman College to reach the community, in partnership with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, attorneys from Atlanta Legal Aid, and members of the Gate City Bar Association, will be on hand to provide free legal tips on expunging a criminal record; obtaining information for children’s rights, such as support payments and Individualized Educational Plans; defending against pushy debt collectors; understanding probates and wills; resolving disputes with difficult landlords; and managing encounters with the police.

Free and open to the public, this forum is one of many programs by COMMUniversity to connect the neighboring community with Atlanta University Center institutions.
