SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

The SWLA Law Center is inviting the public to bring their legal research needs to the Calcasieu Parish Law Library this afternoon from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Magnolia Building in downtown Lake Charles on the fourth floor.   

Those who would like to attend are asked to bring a driver's license and documentation on the case or issue at hand if any are available. 

The law center has arranged for a representative from Lexis Nexis to be on hand to conduct computer-assisted-legal-research at no charge.

This is an opportunity for those who have a legal question or situation for which there is no commonly known answer.  

There are current plans in the works to modernize the law library into a legal, community resource center that will include a small meeting room that will host legal/community seminars;  continuing education classes for attorneys and, legal incubator offices for new and developing attorneys.
