Record attendance expected for 10th Annual Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid at Statehouse Jan. 22
Participation in the 2009 Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid is more
critical than ever this year. Due to the dramatic decline in Interest
on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA) revenue, the Massachusetts Legal
Assistance Corporation (MLAC) has already reduced its general support
grants to local legal aid programs by nearly 40 percent.
“The MBA encourages its members and others in the Massachusetts legal
community to support and attend this vital effort to help protect legal
services funding,” said MBA President Edward W. McIntyre.
