And as is so often the case, legal needs are human service needs – with a twist. By the time the human need has become a legal need, all other resolutions have been tried and likely failed (unless the reason for consulting with an attorney is preventitive, but that’s another post for another day).
I’m pleased to see that the Wyoming ATJ Commission has identified partners to assist them in the process of determining their priorities.
Yesterday on its website, the Wyoming State Bar announced that the Wyoming Supreme Court has signed an order to establish an Access to Justice Commission in Wyoming.
“This is an exciting and challenging project that touches the soul of our profession—helping people,” said E. James Burke, Justice of the Wyoming Supreme Court.
“This Commission will bring increased attention to this important issue and, ultimately, will help provide real and enduring solutions to this problem. We have a lot of work to do, but we also have wonderful support from the judiciary, the bar, and numerous stakeholders in this endeavor,” said Burke.
