New Flier for Self-Represented Litigants

Self-represented litigants often need more information than front-line staff can provide. Librarians at the Wisconsin State Law Library help by providing access to legal information and assisting litigants with locating organizations which provide legal services.

The Library is making it easier to refer people to our services with our public service desk handout. Our new half sheet flier gives a brief description of the type of help we can provide along with essential contact information. The handout can be printed in black and white or color, and can be cut in half for easy distribution at public service desks, such as Clerk of Court service windows.

The fliers can be downloaded or printed from our website in grayscale or color.

Part of the Wisconsin State Law Library’s mission is to facilitate equal access to the law by providing access to trusted sources. Over half of our research requests originate from the general public, who need information on a wide range of topics. Use this handout for a quick and easy referral to the Library’s services.
