Finding legal information and understanding legal language can prove to be a challenge for many individuals, especially for individuals with weak literacy skills. Literacy tutors can use this manual to help students better understand some basic legal concepts concerning wills. With this manual, individuals with weak literacy skills learn how to access legal information and are then able to make informed decisions about issues affecting their lives and to participate more independently in society.
