Student Legal Issues. Final Report.
This report describes a project designed to educate adult education staff on legal issues that affect students so that staff could instruct and support students on the problems they faced. Staff were trained to help students recognize which problems they could handle and which required professional legal consultation. Six workshops (3 hours each) were presented on these legal issues, which were identified as areas of need: family law; housing law; public benefits; health law; consumer law; and employment law. Over 20 adult educators and literacy providers attended each workshop. A training packet was developed as a prototype for inservice training elsewhere. In addition, three student workshops were offered. The 14-page report is accompanied by appendixes that contain the following: public relations/publicity materials and communications dealing with staff development and student workshops; staff development and student workshop evaluations; and all training materials in reproducible form for the staff development workshops on all 6 issues and student workshops on benefits, family law, and housing law. These workshop materials include content outlines, handouts, and sample forms. (YLB)
