We hope you're staying healthy and safe during this difficult time. At IAALS, our staff continues to work remotely, and together we keep working toward justice we can believe in—for everyone. Our mission is critical, now more than ever. The challenges faced by our legal system will be compounded by COVID-19, and we must ensure that states, courts, and the legal profession can adapt and respond to the needs of the people.   

And, we can’t do it alone. We rely on a tremendous group of partners who help guide our work, and we are pleased to announce two new members of our Board of Advisors who join us at this critical time:  
  • James Sandman, President Emeritus of the Legal Services Corporation and Chair of the ABA’s Task Force on Legal Needs Arising Out of the 2020 Pandemic
  • Kathryn Reilly, Partner at Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell and incoming Chair of our Law Firm Counsel    
In addition, Joey Orduna Hastings, Chief Executive Officer of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, has joined our Family Justice Advisory Committee.  

We are excited to count these new advisors among us as we look to the future of our legal system.  

Scott Bales, Executive Director
