Disappearance of Rural Lawyers with Mark Palmer [LGE 099]

Feb 11, 2020 | Podcast

Mark Palmer, Chief Counsel in the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism (also known as 2Civility), sat down with Megan at Clio Con 2019 to talk about the disappearing rural lawyer. We know that there is a massive access to justice problem, but one aspect of this problem we do not hear so much about is the shortage of lawyers in rural areas of the country. There are large geographic expanses with zero or only a handful of lawyers. Mark and Megan talk about the problem and what is being done to address it.
