The Northwest Justice Project provides free legal services to low-income people throughout Washington State and offers a wealth of information through its website. Under the "Self-Help Resources" link are publications dealing with

  • consumer and debt issues
  • education
  • employment
  • family law (child support, divorce, domestic violence, and name change)
  • farmworkers
  • government benefits (financial assistance programs, food stamps, health care benefits, and hearings)
  • health care
  • housing (evictions, home ownership, and landlord/tenant)
  • immigrants
  • Native Americans
  • senior citizens
  • youth

Many of the publications are available in Spanish and Russian. "Do-it-yourself" packets and forms are available for several types of legal actions. Many of the Project's publications are featured in the Gallagher Law Library's research guide on "Sources of Free Legal Information on Washington State Law," http://lib.law.washington.edu/ref/legalinfo.html

A glossary of legal terms is also provided.
