The Commission on IOLTA contributes regularly to Dialogue the quarterly publication of the ABA Division for Legal Services.
Each issue of Dialogue contains an article regarding a specific IOLTA grantee. IOLTA programs provide funding critical to maintaining and improving access to the justice system in communities across the United States. Depending on the state, IOLTA dollars go to support civil legal assistance for poor people, efforts to improve the administration of justice by our courts, initiatives to educate the public about legal issues, and scholarships and clinical instruction for law students.
