Papers and Proceedings of Appalachian Legal Services Conference (Knoxville, Tennessee, July 24-26, 1969).
Lauritis, Ene-Malle, Ed.
The delegates of the Appalachian Legal Services Conference pointed out that the Legal Resource Foundation was not to be a substitute for any agency or professional group but to supplement existing resources, serving as a central organization to focus attention on the need of communities and states to develop sound and effective legal service facilities. Professor Cady presented a survey of needs in legal services and Bert Early of the American Bar Association accepted wide responsbility for the legal profession. Descriptions of various types of plans that are operating successfully in other parts of the country were given. These include neighborhood law offices, circuit riding programs, judicare, and law school clinics. The book includes a resolution for: creating an ad hoc commission, drafting an appropriate charter and bylaws along the lines suggested by the resolution, and providing bylaws along the lines suggested by the resolution, and providing bylaws dealing with< policies of the Foundation (composition to be prescribed by the ad hoc commission), representation of the interests of the governors, bas associations, and affected clientele. Appendices contain survey data, and information on "practice of law" by law students, and a work program. (NL)
