Abstract

This article details the history of the provision of free legal services for the poor. Advocates of the governmentally-funded Legal Service Corporations (LSC) have encountered numerous obstacles and endured ferocious attacks from opponents. At times it appeared that the entire LSC program was in jeopardy. The author recounts the establishment of the LSC program in Illinois, summarizes the LSC's many accomplishments, and outlines the challenges that the Illinois legal community will face in continuing to offer legal services to the impoverished of our state.
