As the chair of the Delivery of Legal Services to the Public Committee, I have the pleasure of working with amazing pro bono and access to justice advocates who are deeply and genuinely committed to helping others.

Delivery of Legal Services to the Public 

The committee develops and promotes programs designed to make legal services more readily available in the community, works with other organizations to increase services, coordinates participation of the HSBA membership in such programs, and provides a forum for exchange of ideas and information.

The Hawaii delegation at this year's Equal Justice Conference in San Diego, CA included members of the HSBA’s Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services to the Public. The group, which included legal service providers, attorneys in private practice, and members of the Hawaii State Judiciary wore matching ties and scarves and helped share Hawaii's aloha with special treats and small local gifts for the attendees.

Legal Aid Society of Hawaii Executive Director Nalani Fujimori Kaina and George T. (Buck) Lewis III, Chair of the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service, served as the co-chairs for this year's conference. This year's conference was one of the largest attended as it brought together 1,001 judges, attorneys, and legal advocates to discuss and address issues related to the delivery of legal services to low-income individuals in need of legal assistance.
