Clerk’s Office hosts next free legal forum: Public Records


Public records play a crucial role in maintaining transparency and accountability in government and other institutions. These records provide access to information essential for citizens to make informed decisions, hold officials accountable for their actions, and ensure that systems function as they should in our democracy. Without public records, it would be difficult to create a truly participatory democracy, and we would be left in the dark about many important issues facing our communities and our world.

Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell invites you to a free virtual legal forum to learn about public records. The webinar will be on April 23, 2024, held on Tuesday on the Zoom platform from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

This free forum will provide information and answer questions about public records, court records, and sealing and expungement. Featured topics will include what type of documents are public records and how to request them. Participants will also be able to ask questions of the panel presenting.   

Legal Matters was created as a service for the public to make legal information more easily accessible. “These forums are one of the best ways to give our citizens more access to justice and access to the information they have the right to know,” said Clerk Russell.

All forums are free to attend. This forum is part of a series of free legal education seminars Clerk Russell has conducted since 2015. Other free forums have focused on topics such as probate, evictions, divorce, foreclosure, and guardianship.
