Legal Services Funding

IOLTA and Pro Bono reporting success

If you have been paying attention to the news at all, one of the stories you have heard is about all of the funding cutbacks legal services programs are facing.  As a result, programs are making extra efforts to increase our fundraising from private sources.  It is always nice when that effort is an easy one.

Civil Right to Counsel (Civil Gideon)


This Book will have to be organized as we gather information.  Right now I've noticed we have a lot of "civil Gideon" information kind of spread around MDJustice, and I thought it might be helpful to gather it in one place.  We'll see.  It is not in any particular order yet.
