‘Better Lawyering for the Poor’ in New York: inspiration for the rest of the States

In New York, chief judge Jonathan Lippman has put forward innovative changes to the ways lawyers are trained and supported to enter the work force – including opportunities for early entry to the Bar in exchange for a third year semester of supervised free legal work for the poor. In addition, Lippman seeks to train grassroots non-lawyer advocates, or “court navigators”, to assist people who otherwise would not have access to legal representation.
