Orange City Library will host a presentation by Legal Aid lawyer Jill Marshall on May 19 as part of Law Week.
Law Week is a national initiative to promote community awareness and understanding of the law, the Australian legal system and the legal profession.
In 'Your Money and the Law' Ms Marshall will speak about organisations and resources people can use to help with problems such as being chased for money, being owed money and borrowing money.
She will be accompanied by mediator Jane Atkinson from the Community Justice Centre, a NSW-Government-funded service that provides free mediation to help people solve disagreements without going to court.
"We're probably most known for the work we do in criminal law, but we also have solicitors able to assist and advise on civil and family law issues as well," Ms Marshall said.
"All too often we see clients who have avoided dealing with a debt demand and then the next thing they receive is a court process. Ignoring this can lead to a judgment debt and the Sheriff knocking at the door."
