Texas Supreme Court Justice Gap Commission Calls for Better Referral System, Training

Those ideas, identified in a Dec. 6 report by the high court’s Commission to Expand Civil Legal Services, include creating a statewide referral system to send modest-means clients to lawyers whom they can afford, supporting legal incubators to teach law students to make a living representing those clients, and launching an online portal for lawyers to bid on representing clients who post about their legal problems.
