History

Hon. Joseph Kreamer, has been chairing the Arizona Legal Services Steering Committee since its inception in 1998, following the submission of an Arizona plan to consolidate and coordinate the delivery of free legal services across the state required by the national Legal Service Corporation. The Steering Committee has provided, and continues to provide, leadership in many projects to further equal access to justice. These projects include, but are not limited to: the creation of an Arizona legal help website; an online legal intake system; a statewide legal needs assessment; and award winning volunteer lawyer programs.

The Arizona State Plan for Delivery of Legal Services is the first statewide plan submitted in the late 1990s. The landscape has changed since then, but the review is a good history of Arizona’s legal needs.
