Your Commitment to the Public
Client Assistance Fund
Under special provisions of the Idaho State Bar and Idaho Supreme Court Rules, a fund has been created for maintaining the integrity and protecting the good name of the legal profession by reimbursing claimants for losses caused by dishonest conduct of a lawyer. Under the program, fees are paid by all lawyers throughout the state to assist in compensating members of the public for an Idaho lawyer’s dishonest conduct when the claimant has no other recourse to recoup the loss.
Law Related Education
Law Related Education teaches how the role of law serves as the basis of democratic society. Programs are offered to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. There are many ways to become involved, including the Lawyers in the Classroom Program and the Mock Trial Program.
Citizens' Law Academy
The Citizens' Law Academy is a multi-week adult public information program designed to help the public understand the laws affecting their daily lives, their rights under the law, what lawyers do, and how the judicial system works. It also focuses on lawyers’ public service, pro bono work and activities that help ensure equal access.
Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program
The Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program provides volunteer legal assistance to low-income citizens across the state. IVLP staff screens applicants for income and case eligibility and supports volunteer attorneys as they prepare cases.
