In June 2009, the Georgia Supreme Court Civil Justice Commission released its Legal Needs Study and Pro Bono Survey. The Court is sponsoring over a dozen Roundtable Discussions across the state to garner feedback from the public, the legal community, service agencies and the courts. Several more Civil Legal Needs Roundtable Discussions are scheduled for September and October. The state Legal Needs Study and Pro Bono Survey materials can be found on the Supreme Court Committee’s site.
Roundtables have already been held in Lawrenceville, Ellijay, Brunswick, and Albany. Over 100 people attended the Ellijay event, hosted by the Chief Judge of the Appalachian Circuit. You can check the GeorgiaAdvocates Calendar for upcoming roundtables in yor area.
