Statement from the President of the Connecticut Bar Association

Recommendations of the Task Force

to Improve Access to Legal Counsel in Civil Matters

 

On December 15, 2016, the Connecticut Task Force to Improve Access to Legal Counsel in Civil Matters issued its final report and recommendations. This link provides access to the final report: http://bit.ly/2i2hEEF

 

STATEMENT FROM CBA PRESIDENT MONTE FRANK

 

“The Connecticut Bar Association supports the findings of the task force.

 

“The recommendations offer a series of steps that can be taken immediately to help civil litigants most at risk of being denied adequate legal assistance. The focus on restraining orders, child custody, and evictions targets the state’s most vulnerable citizens.

 

“The task force responsibly addresses the added societal cost of offering these additional legal services with a series of funding recommendations and by laying out a multi-year strategy for wider implementation.

 

The CBA also wishes to congratulate former CBA President Bill Clendenen and UConn Law School Dean Timothy Fisher for their leadership.”
