It is becoming increasingly difficult for the middle class to obtain legal counsel.  The average income for the middle class resident is too high to qualify for pro bono legal services, which are based on the federal poverty guidelines, but not high enough to afford market rate attorneys.  To address this issue, a section of the legal community is providing “low bono” legal counsel to these middle class clients—both through small organizations and solo or small firm attorneys.  These attorneys charge rates that are well below market rates to allow middle class clients affordable access to legal counsel that ...

Juking Access To Justice To Deregulate The Legal Market, Milan Markovic 2016 Texas A&M University School of Law

Juking Access To Justice To Deregulate The Legal Market, Milan Markovic

Milan Markovic

Study after study has concluded that the United States suffers from a lack of access to justice because most legal issues are addressed without attorney involvement. To better serve Americans who cannot currently afford legal assistance, scholars have argued that corporations should be permitted to offer legal services. England and Australia already allow corporations to own law firms and deliver legal services.

Whatever the merits of corporate delivery of legal services, its impact on access to justice has been overstated. The cost of legal services plays a minor role in decisions to not obtain legal assistance. Moreover, many legal services ...


Lawyers And The Secret Welfare State, Milan Markovic 2016 Texas A&M University School of Law

Lawyers And The Secret Welfare State, Milan Markovic

Milan Markovic

This Article suggests that the United States maintains a secret welfare state. The secret welfare state exists because of lawyers’ ubiquitous use of questionable practices in representing clients before benefit-granting government agencies, which enable thousands of individual to collect public benefits who may not qualify for them. This Article focuses in particular on lawyers’ handling of evidence of nondisability in Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) proceedings and participation in Medicaid planning. It may be possible that the legal profession’s central role in the distribution of public benefits is an obstacle to a fairer and more transparent social safety net.

Shifting Attitudes In The Next Generation Of Male Lawyers: Will The Kids Be As Important As The Courtroom?, Shannon R. Webb, Catherine Loughlin 2016 Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology

Shifting Attitudes In The Next Generation Of Male Lawyers: Will The Kids Be As Important As The Courtroom?, Shannon R. Webb, Catherine Loughlin

Western Journal of Legal Studies

We adopted role salience measures to assess whether commitments to occupational, parental, and marital roles differed between male and female law students. The results indicated that male law students were slightly more committed to occupational roles. We also found that male and female law students were equally committed to marital and childcare roles. Surprisingly, male and female law students reported equal self-efficacy to manage work-life conflict. Therefore, the study suggests that the decision to opt out of legal careers likely occurs more at the workplace level and is less attributed to pre-career commitment or self-efficacy levels.
