This year's award goes to the State Bar of South Dakota's Project Rural Practice. The Committee also recognizes Richard Zorza with a lifetime achievement award. Meritorious recognition goes to: the Eviction Defense Network, the Health Care Rights Initiative, and the Sustainable Economies Law Center.
Just released, Reinventing the Practice of Law explores ways in which lawyers can change their practices to make things better - for themselves, their clients and their neighborhoods. The book encourages lawyers to step out of the mold and consider how they can create better practices when providing personal legal services.
The Committee is coordinating law school and bar-sponsored incubators and residencies that foster the development of practices for newly admitted lawyers. For more information or to be included on the Incubator LISTSERV, contact email@example.com
