TALIAS brings legal assistance to the Albemarle
January 16, 2013
Come to Elizabeth City State University to participate in and learn from another semester of live, legal assistance videoconferences. The topics cover a wide range of matters that impact people every day.

Other institutions hosting the legal series are Winston-Salem State University, North Carolina A&T State University and Fayetteville State University. Topics scheduled for this semester, and the date held, include:

NCCU School of Law, in the fall of 2010, received approximately $2 million in funding from the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). That funding made it possible to expand broadband infrastructure and deliver vital legal services throughout North Carolina. Technology Assisted Legal Instruction and Services, or TALIAS, expands access to the NCCU School of Law’s nationally-ranked legal education and clinical programs. Advanced registration is recommended for each videoconference. To attend a session at ECSU, call (252) 335-8548.
