Aid for legal aid

Issue April 2005

MBA President Kathy O'Donnell joined other bar association presidents and colleagues on March 8 at the State House for the annual Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid. The goal of the event was to convince legislators to restore $1.5 million in cuts to civil legal aid in line item 0321-1600 and to increase funding for $3 million to better meet the need for services across the commonwealth.
