A Call to Action

Check out this recent Op-ed from the New York Times addressing the widening justice gap in our country.  Many in the legal community are calling for changes that would help provide legal assistance to those in need–and they’re urging the legal community to work together to solve this problem.  Esther Lardent of the Pro Bono Institute ponders whether it is also time for mandatory pro bono–a requirement that could help address the justice gap as well.

  1. An interesting article—I especially like the suggestions regarding reform in legal education. I would love to see more of an emphasis at IU on public interest careers.
