Guide to Self-Help Legal Publications


This guide provides a quick overview of Nolo self-help legal publications available through the University of Cincinnati.  Nolo is a leading provider of plain-English legal information and products for consumers and businesses.   Nolo's goal is to provide reliable, plain-English legal information that anyone can use to handle rountine legal matters. 

When using Nolo titles, please note that many of the Nolo titles available through UC are no longer updated.  To locate updated Nolo titles consider searching the catalog of your local public library.  Also, off-campus access to electronic versions of Nolo titles is available only to UC faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.
