Ind. Courts - More on: Supreme Court creates assessment team to review its entities that now focus on issues involving unrepresented litigation

Recall this ILB post from June 10, 2015 (and this interesting followup from Aug. 4), that announced:

An ad hoc assessment team has been created to review the three Supreme Court entities that predominantly focus on issues involving unrepresented litigation in Indiana. The three entities are:
  1. Indiana Pro Bono Commission
  2. Committee on Unrepresented Litigants
  3. Indiana Commission to Expand Access to Civil Legal Services
* * * The assessment team will provide a written report, with findings and recommendations, to the Indiana Supreme Court by September 1, 2015.
Today the Supreme Court has announced the creation of the Coalition for Court Access, to work on civil legal aid. Here is the 18-page Court order, accompanied by rule changes to implement the creation of the new entity and its work. The new membership list is appended to the order.
