The Back to the Basics webinar will provide training, information related to legal plans, and focus on the role of Referral Attorneys. 

We will discuss the need for legal services, Access to Justice (“A2J”) initiatives, and the importance of legal plans and referral attorneys in meeting the need for legal services and challenges related to A2J.

We will focus on ways to grow your practice, how to work with legal plans, and what legal plans look for in referral attorneys.

The Webinar will provide an opportunity for professional growth and development, practice tips, and how to deliver exceptional customer service.

The U.S. Department of Justice established the Office for Access to Justice (“A2J”) in March 2010 to address what has come to be viewed as a crisis in our criminal and civil justice system. The majority of states have established an A2J Commission. Our judicial system is not fair and poses great challenges for those who don’t have access to an attorney. The two main barriers to ATJ are cost and not knowing where to go for help. We can all support legal services plans that provide a real and economical alternative to help meet these challenges and provide equal access to justice and referral attorneys.
