Legally Speaking is a new free monthly series of discussions with Q & A on various legal and financial life event topics. In the series, Santa Cruz County Bar Association recommended lawyers and finance/business professionals answer questions about the most frequently experienced legal issues faced by people in our community. These discussions will take place at various locations throughout the county on the 2nd Thursday of the month except for the first event, covering immigration law.
