State Bar of Michigan Annual Meeting: The Michigan Legal Help Program

When it comes to civil legal matters, sometimes an individual may have to represent themselves in the court of law. In this report from On The Road, host Laurence Colletti talks with Michigan Legal Help Program Project Manager Angela Tripp, State Bar of Michigan Practice Management Advisor JoAnn Hathaway, and Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program Administrator Tish Vincent about the Michigan Legal Help Program and how they are working to increase access to justice and fill the legal gap.

Angela Tripp has been the project manager of the Michigan Legal Help Program since 2011, and co-managing attorney of the Michigan Poverty Law Program since 2010. She transitioned into these roles after working with Legal Services of South Central Michigan since 2005, first as a staff attorney and then as a managing attorney in the Lansing field office.
