In large areas of America, people cannot access advice for a host of legal issues because legal services are often hard to find for people in rural communities. An overwhelming percentage of attorneys in most states locate in urban areas, leaving rural counties without convenient access to legal help. During this webinar, we will discuss the overall issue of “legal deserts” in America, examine what some bars are doing to help ease the problem, and share ideas that bars can undertake in the future.
David Gilbertson, Chief Justice of the South Dakota Supreme Court
