Durham—Legal Aid of North Carolina’s Durham office will launch its annual Nellie Kearney Real Life Series tomorrow at 7 p.m. The series of three legal-education presentations will cover important, timely, real-life legal topics like eviction, government benefit programs and tax filing.

The presentations will provide participants with general legal information, not specific legal advice. People who have questions or need advice about a specific legal situation should call our statewide toll-free helpline at 1-866-219-5262 or submit an online application at legalaidnc.org/apply.

All sessions are completely free and open to all North Carolinians. Details for the individual sessions are below.

The series is named in honor of Nellie Gray Kearney, a Vance County native who has helped educate communities in her hometown and throughout North Carolina about their rights, responsibilities and opportunities.
