The Nebraska Online Legal
Self-Help website has a new look and additional features to improve
Nebraskans' access to legal information, including new content and forms
that are simpler to find and use.
?Visitors to the site will find the list of main categories at the top
of the home page, which allows for the addition of sub-categories on
subsequent pages,? said Judge Richard Sievers, Nebraska Supreme Court
Pro Se Committee Chairman. ?We are grateful for the commitment of the
committee members, court staff, and technical assistance of the folks at
Nebraska.gov for their hard work in making this redesign happen.?
The ?When You Can't Afford a Lawyer? section now includes referrals to a
greater number of low-income legal assistance groups, as well as law
libraries and law school legal clinics. Links have been added to
Nebraska Legal Aid's website for their auto-fill Power of Attorney form.
?The hard and invaluable work of our forms committee, under the
direction of Judge Teresa Luther from Grand Island, is nicely showcased
through this new site and will be of great benefit to low-income
Nebraskans needing access to the legal system,? said Sievers.
The new Web portal can be readily accessed at: http://www.legalselfhelp.ne.gov/.
In coming months, additional enhancements will be introduced to improve
and expand resources for those in need of legal assistance who lack the
resources to hire an attorney.
The forms and information found on the online self-help center are
provided by the Nebraska Supreme Court's Committee on Implementation of
Assistance to Pro Se Litigants as part of the Nebraska Supreme Court's
commitment to ensuring that all Nebraskans have meaningful and full
access to the judicial system, including those Nebraskans who represent
