Making Legal Aid Work – 844-292-1318 Iowa legal aid

YES- IT DOES MAKE IT WORK!

THIS IS THE ONLY SINGLE-VOLUME COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO THE LEGAL AID SCHEME CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO HELP THE NEW AND THE EXPERIENCED PRACTITIONER

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

There is much to be commended with this excellent new publication from the Legal Action Group (LAG) filling the gap left as a successor to the annual Legal Aid Handbook no longer in print.

Of course, LAG specializes in those controversial areas of law of deepest concern to the general public with their problems as well as practitioners who deal with them. LAG is at the forefront this year with one of the most important contemporary issues of the moment- legal aid desperately in need of modern reform during an economic downturn.

Vicky Ling and Simon Pugh assert, quite rightly, that legal aid is fundamental to the operation of a democratic society. And the authors quote Lord Bingham who said equality before the law is a pretence if some citizens can assert and protect their rights and others cannot; that the rule of law to be meaningful, must ensure that justice is available to all, irrespective of means. This 300 page paperback gives us all a hand in making this scheme work in 21st century.

Ling & Pugh pointed out at their book launch that, significantly, 2009 marks the 60th anniversary of the Legal Aid and Assistance Act 1949 which created legal aid. It also, inevitably, created the complex and unwieldy bureaucratic apparatus that administers and supports it: the Legal Services Commissions Manual at 1,000 pages long and great for somnambulists.

What we have tried to do in this book, say the authors, is provide a practical guide to all the various elements that make up legal aid in one volume. They do just that with Part A covering Doing Legal Aid Work which aims to take lawyers and caseworkers through the rules and regulations that govern the criminal, civil and family schemes, illustrated by case studies, with references to primary sources.

Part B covers Managing Legal Aid Work and provides directors, managers and administrators with advice and guidance on keeping contracts and likely future developments.

The book covers both the civil and criminal legal aid schemes. The word comprehensive is much used these days, but it is a fair statement of the detail and usefulness of this book with its excellent case studies which have the practical content we so desperately need as practitioners in the system.

So, we sum it up by saying, yes, they do make it work for us and, as a footnote, we used it the other day on an intricate legal aid point, using the index, then the appendices and the body copy to track down some advice found very quickly. As Ling & Pugh said to us, lets hope it fills the vacant gap left by the demise of the old handbookand we know it will as it is highly user-friendly.

Making the Case for Community Lawyering – 844-292-1318 Washington legal aid

Making the Case for Community Lawyering

Legal aid lawyers and community organizers may work with the same client groups, but their strategies and perspectives may not always align. Can lawyers and organizers ever work together? Can such a community lawyering practice benefit clients?

Bread for the City in Washington, DC, would answer those questions with a resounding “YES.” Its lawyers and organizers are seeing real results from Bread for the City’s Community Lawyering Project.

We talked with Taylor Healy—a Bread for the City attorney—and Aja Taylor—a Bread for the City organizer—about their community lawyering practice.

On Wednesday, Executives of numerous major U.S. corporations pressed Mississippi to repeal a new state law that allows businesses the ability to deny wedding services to same-sex couples for religious reasons. The measure, which also allows employers to cite ideologies of faith in setting workplace policies on dress code, hygiene, and bathroom access, was signed into law on Tuesday by Republican Governor Phil Bryant. Bryant praised the statute – the most recent in a series of state laws opposed by LGBT residents – as designed to “protect sincerely held religious beliefs and moral convictions … from discriminatory action by state government.”

Helping Michigan entrepreneurs put their bright ideas to work.
MiSpringboard is Varnum’s statewide initiative designed to remove some of the barriers associated with starting a business by providing free legal services to Michigan startups.

We launched the MiSpringboard program in 2011 as a way of helping Michigan’s then-struggling economy. A giveaway of million in free legal services, MiSpringboard was our way of helping the economy by doing what we do best – provide high quality legal counsel to businesses and individuals.

We recently renewed our commitment to Michigan startups by dedicating a second million in free legal services through the MiSpringboard program. We look forward to working with the innovative entrepreneurs and referral partner organizations who are creating a vibrant startup community in Michigan.
