Last Friday, February 8th, the University of Mississippi Law Journal hosted a wonderful symposium on poverty and access to justice. Symposium discussions addressed legal aid delivery and resource challenges, pro bono initiatives, civil Gideon, practice barriers to legal assistance from non-lawyers, the role of law schools in increasing access to justice, new access to justice partnership opportunities such as medical-legal partnerships, the use of technology to support legal self-help programs, and many other topics. Perspectives on these issues were offered by members of the Judiciary, attorneys from the public and private sectors, and academics. I was very honored to present my own paper on Washington State's new limited license legal technician rule, which will allow non-lawyers to provide a broad range of legal assistance outside of court proceedings and negotiations. The published conference papers are available here.
