    Ethical Obligations of Lawyers Whose Employers Receive Funds from the Legal Services Corporation to their Existing and Future Clients when Such Funding is Reduced and when Remaining Funding is Subject to Restrictive Conditions Legislative proposals currently pending in Congress are expected to significantly reduce funding for the Legal Services Corporation. The legislation will also restrict whom an LSC funded lawyer may represent, the subject matter of such representation and the manner in which such representation may be pursued. Finally, in the case of contested matters, the legislation mandates disclosures the client is required to make. All of this presents serious ethical questions for the lawyers who work for agencies that receive this funding.
