Livni to Launch Legal Aid Pilot Program

Minister of Justice Tzipi Livni will be launching a program that will help make the legal system to those of the public who do not have legal representation. Livni arrived in Beer Sheva's courthouse this morning (Thursday) to announce the "Access to Justice" program, and to tour the region.,

The program's aim is to provide legal advice, and legal aid - when needed - to the general unrepresented public under the auspices of the courts and the Department of Legal Aid and is geared to the members of society who do not have private retainers at their disposals,  funds to hire an attorney, but are entitled to decent legal representation in times of need, the lack of which impedes the entire legal system.
