Free Legal Consultations

Area residents may consult with lawyers at no charge during a special call-in program tonight. The "No Bills Night," sponsored by the Young Lawyers Conference of the Virginia State Bar, offers confidential 10-minute telephone consultations on any legal-oriented matter.

Instead of offering legal advice themselves, however, the lawyers will attempt to identify problems and suggest avenues to get them resolved.

The call-in to 703-903-9000 takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Open House at U-Va. Teaching Center

In addition, graduate level courses are offered each semester for teachers wishing to meet certification requirements and/or facilitate instruction in accordance with Virginia's Standards of Learning.

Prospective students are invited to drop by to meet faculty and staff and pick up information. Consultation will be available with a certified career counselor. The free event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. at 7054 Haycock Rd., Falls Church. For information, call 703-536-1146.
