State of pro se in Montana


Hello, all, my name is Orijit and this is my first post on the site. I am currently working as an Americorps VISTA volunteer with Montana Legal Services Association (MLSA) on self-help law in Montana. As the only provider of civil legal services statewide, MLSA must turn down many clients that are income-eligible for services because of resources and other constraints. Therefore, MLSA has made an effort to promote self-help law practices such as pro se clinics, self-help workstations and a comprehensive website to provide assistance to those who cannot be directly represented.

On page 11 of this month’s ‘Montana Lawyer’, you will find an article I authored which summarizes the state of pro se activities in Montana, along with a rough outline of what we hope to provide in the future. Please check back for updates on new resources and legislative activity that I hope to provide as soon as they are available.
