Hennepin County Bar Association's Free Tel-Law Legal Information Service

If you are a Minnesota resident looking for an introduction to a legal topic, the Hennepin County Bar Association provides free pre-recorded telephone messages on nearly a hundred personal, consumer and family legal issues. The number to call is 612-752-6699.

An semi-authoritarian male voice (the sort that used to narrate educational films in the 50's) provides a few paragraphs of general information. Messages listed may be unavailable if they are undergoing revisions or for technical reasons.

As a public service, we are reproducing the menu of Tel-Law messages along with the three-digit code you enter to access each of them:

Tel-Law messages are grouped under the following topics:

Legal Services
Credit & Bankruptcy
Landlord & Tenant
Criminal Law
Civil Law
Family Law
Consumer Law
Wills, Estate Planning and Elder Concerns
Juvenile Law
Tax Law
Employment
Home Ownership
Patents, Trademarks & Copyrights
Libel & Slander
