For lawyers interested in improving access to justice, it can be difficult finding organizations that you can work with to accomplish that goal. In this report from On The Road, hosts JoAnn Hathaway and Tish Vincent talk with Michigan State Bar Foundation Executive Director Linda Rexer about the foundation, limited scope representation, and the Michigan self-help program.

Her long list of national and state leadership roles includes being a founding member of the State Bar of Michigan’s Access to Justice Task Force and current co-chair of its successor entity, and co-chair of the Access Committee of the State Bar’s 21st Century Task Force on the Future of Legal Services.
