A Difficult Time For Legal Aid
The National Law Journal and the Wall Street Journal Law Blog are reporting that Legal Aid organizations are having a particularly difficult time at the moment. With state funding being cut across the country the already hardworking Legal Aid system is struggling. Organizations from many states are reporting significant funding drops, coupled with large increases in the number of people seeking low cost assistance. The Legal Aid Society can help only one in nine people who seek their assistance. Legal representation for the impoverished is both important and expensive. Any thoughts as to how it can be maintained?
