In an amendment to the Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct, the Indiana Supreme Court is revamping its response to civil legal aid.

An order signed by Chief Justice Loretta Rush takes effect today, May 17. It consolidates the three existing legal aid committees – the Indiana Pro Bono Commission, the Indiana Commission to Expand Access to Civil Legal Services and the Indiana Supreme Court Committee on Unrepresented Litigants – into the new Coalition for Court Access.
