Legal Aid will have a free Legal Aid Walk In Clinic on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the Bartholomew County Public Library in Columbus. The clinic will be from 3 to 5 p.m. and is for low-income residents.

There is no need to register in advance.

The general advice clinic for items such as adoptions, advance directives, family law, guardianships, protective orders, simple wills and small estates, is from 3 to 4 p.m.

The eviction clinic is from 4 to 5 p.m. covering negotiations with a landlord, legal defenses to an eviction damage hearings and eviction records.
