The Alachua County Library District is partnering with the Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar Association to present Law in the Library: Small Businesses - What entrepreneurs should know to set up and operate businesses on Monday, April 3, 6 p.m. at Headquarters Library, 401 E. University Avenue. Philip N. Kabler, Esq., an attorney with Bogin, Munns & Munns, P.A., will cover the basic issues real entrepreneurs should know to help them when they decide to form their business. He will answer questions such as: Should I be a sole entrepreneur or create a corporation, an LLC, or something else?  What do I have to do to set up my company? What do I need to know – and do – once I start my business about compliance, contracts, employees, loans, real estate and other topics?

Law in the Library continues with: Restoration of Civil Rights Workshops on Thursday April 6, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at Library Partnership, 1130 N.E. 16 Avenue, (352) 334-0165. Attorneys from Josiah T. Walls Bar Association and law students from the University of Florida Levin College of Law will provide one-on-one assistance to persons who have been convicted of a felony and are interested in applying to have their civil rights restored. If civil rights are restored an applicant will have the right to vote, sit on a jury and hold public office. Also, the attorneys will meet with people who are interested in having their records sealed or expunged.

During these free presentations experienced attorneys and professionals share their knowledge on a variety of pertinent legal issues. Helpful legal resources are also available online from the Library District’s Nolo’s small business essentials series and the WestLawNext (only available at Headquarters Library ) and Gale Legal Forms
