FLAC is a walk-in clinic for self-represented parties involved in family court. It is staffed by volunteer
attorneys and paralegals who give legal information about forms and procedures. The clinic meets every
Wednesday in the Dane County Courthouse; Spanish language assistance is offered twice a month.
Volunteers will have a 2-hour shift 2-4 times per year.

We need more volunteers, both English and Spanish speakers! FLAC opened in 2000 and assists over
500 visitors each year. The number of pro se litigants in the Wisconsin Court System continues to rise
and your assistance can make all the difference!

This training session is an excellent opportunity for both new and continuing volunteers. There is no
registration fee so join us for what is guaranteed to be an informative afternoon. Please register by
RSVP as indicated above – and recruit a colleague to come with you!

Refreshments will be provided.

This training brougt to you by the Dane County Legal Resource Center and the Dane County Bar Association.
