*Changes to LawLine Advice Services
LawLINE advice services have been funded for another year and will continue until at least March 31, 2010. However, as a result of reductions to LawLINE staff, the scope of coverage for LawLINE has been redefined to tailor the service primarily to issues arising from the current economy.
Effective April 6, 2009, LawLINE advice services will be available for fewer areas of law. For a list of the categories that continue to be covered and examples of each category, see the LawLINE page of the LSS website. If you still have any of our old LawLINE promotional materials (poster, bookmark, wallet card, notepad), please discard them. If you have information about LawLINE in any of your publications or on your websites, please ensure that these are updated to reflect the changes to this service.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please e-mail LSS-Services. April 3, 2009.
