The ABA Standards for the Provision of Civil Legal Aid were adopted by the ABA House of Delegates in 2006 and are a revised and updated version of similar standards promulgated in 1961, 1966, 1970, and 1986. At the 2017 NLADA Annual Conference, the ABA Standing Committee on Legal Aid and Indigent Defendants (SCLAID) conducted a listening session to determine if the guidance provided in the Standards remains timely and appropriate in light of changes occurring in society, the profession, and technology. SCLAID has taken that input, along with others, and has developed a plan for updating key sections of the Standards for formal release in August 2020. At this session, SCLAID is seeking input from the legal aid community on the areas of focus for amendment of the Standards and additional feedback on SCLAID’s plan moving forward. Come prepared to share your views on this important topic.
