We are pleased to offer the following CLEs:
Setting the Tax Record Straight
This program will provide an introduction to helping taxpayers challenge tax debts with the IRS after they have already been assessed. The training will take you step-by-step from selecting the right remedy, creating a challenge to the IRS, and the process from start to finish. No tax expertise is necessary. We will address common tax credit problems, as well as requesting innocent spouse relief.

Domestic Relations Law in a Legal Clinic Setting
This program is designed to prepare volunteer attorneys who provide critical representation to low-income clients at the Licking County Interfaith Clinic and other brief advice legal clinics coordinated by Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (SEOLS). Attorneys will learn how to provide brief advice to clients seeking assistance with divorce, custody, visitation and other domestic relations issues. While there will be some discussion of local domestic relations practice in Licking County, the information should be relevant to all general brief advice clinics in the SEOLS service area. A Licking County Interfaith Clinic will immediately follow the CLE at 5:00 p.m. at the same location as the CLE. The CLE is free for any attorney who agrees to volunteer at the Licking County Interfaith Clinic or at other SEOLS sponsored clinics.
