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.

Linda Rexer has led the Michigan State Bar Foundation, which provides significant funding and leadership for civil legal aid, for 30 years. 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. She was co-chair of the Solutions on Self-Help Task Force, which launched the Michigan Legal Help Program; a member of the Management Information Exchange board; president of the National Association of IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts) Programs; a trustee of the National Conference of Bar Foundations; a member of the ABA Task Force to Revise the Civil Legal Aid Standards; and a member of the Legal Services Corporation’s Performance Criteria Committee. She is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Notre Dame.
