Bars Helping Ease Access to Justice in Rural America

January 8, 2020

1:00 - 2:00 p.m. eastern time
(12:00 - 1:00 p.m. central time; 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. mountain time; 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. pacific time)

This program is free of charge but you must register to attend.

 


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.


SPEAKERS

David Gilbertson, Chief Justice of the South Dakota Supreme Court 
Taier PerlmanAlbany Law School Rural Law Initiative
Suzanne Starr
, Director of Policy & Legal Services, South Dakota Unified Judicial System


MODERATOR
