BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Families of Buffalo schoolchildren can get a free lesson in the law if they need it.

A partnership between the Buffalo school district, Say Yes Buffalo program and several law firms is offering free legal advice to families of students in the district.

Acting Superintendent Donald Ogilvie, Say Yes Executive Director David Rust and U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh Scott plan a press conference Tuesday to explain details of the new service. Robert Elardo of the Volunteer Lawyers Project and the managing partners of the participating law firms also will attend.

Families will be able to get advice on a variety of issues, including child-custody questions and landlord-tenant disputes.
