Episode Notes

One of the easiest ways lawyers can get involved in the access to justice movement is by signing up for the Free Legal Answers program. In this On The Road episode, host John Williams talks to Rod Ring, chair of the Oklahoma Bar Association Access to Justice Committee, about what the committee is doing to help low-income people have greater access to legal services. They explain how the Oklahoma Free Legal Answers program allows lawyers to donate small amounts of time online to anonymously answer legal questions for low-income people. They also talk about opportunities for lawyers to take on clients in a lesser capacity through limited scope representation.
