Chicago Bar Assn. Offers Free Legal Handbook for Chicagoans
from the Chicago Bar Assn.

CHICAGO, ILL. (June 6, 2007)— The newly revised and reprinted paperback "Your Guide to the Law: A Basic Legal Handbook for Chicagoans," published by The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) of The Chicago Bar Association (CBA), is available at no cost from the CBA Bookstore at 312-554-2130 or online at

Intended for use by non-lawyers, the 119-page book covers common questions about typical legal issues faced by consumers. Chapters include such topics as: bankruptcy, homebuying, divorce, jury duty, landlord/tenant issues, traffic, and criminal charges. A useful list of legal resources for Chicagoans is also included.

Written and edited by members of the YLS, the book's introduction explains its purpose is “increasing Chicagoans’ knowledge of the legal rules that affect us all.” Authors say they hope the handbook will be used by teachers, parents, students or citizens who have questions about the legal system.
