It seems only yesterday that limited license legal technicians were a weird outlier, subject of much suspicion and even hostility.
- It carefully analyses the needs, and recommends the areas that should be addressed
- It includes a listing of the status of the idea in other states (with much more going on than I had realized)
- It discusses alternative strategies for solving the access to justice challenge incuding such things as unbundling and self-help
- It proposes draft rules
- It very carefully defines what the LLLT can do, and indeed, that does include a broad range of advice, but not anything in the courtroom (In other words it is narrower than McKenzie Friends, but broader than some concepts.)
- It uses the already developed framework for evaluation, funded by the Public Welfare Foundation, of these innovations, which will be very helpful for all approaches moving forward.
This has to be a major breakthrough.
