To Our Readers
I was among those fortunate enough to attend the inspiring symposium on
Legal Services to the Poor: The Dream, the Reality, the Future, held at the
Lyndon Baines Johnson Library on April 8, in beautiful Austin, Texas. Upon
inquiry, I found that the L.B.J. Library had photographs relevant to the history of
legal services. We will include some of these in future issues of the Clearinghouse
Review. The first appear in this issue of the Review, courtesy of the L.B.J. Library.
The National Clearinghouse for Legal Services is proud to have played a part
in serving legal advocates for poor people during the past 25 years. We will
celebrate our 25th anniversary this year in several ways. The first is this special
issue of the Clearinghouse Review looking back at the history of legal services
and looking ahead to what the future may hold, from the perspective of national
support centers, the National Training Coordinating Council (NTCC), and the
National Organization of State Support Units (NOSSU). We are grateful for the
opportunity to publish these articles.
Two events will take place in September in conjunction with our 25th anni-
versary. On September 25 and 26, 1992, in Chicago, the Clearinghouse will hold
a 25th anniversary symposium on the impact of the revolution in communications
and technology on poor people, on their substantive legal claims, and on effective
legal representation on their behalf. Since September 1992 marks the 25th anni-
versary of the very first issue of the Clearinghouse Review (in September 1967),
the September Review will present a history of the Clearinghouse's 25 years.
One final note. We are grateful to all who have responded to our two reader
surveys in the November 1991 and February 1992 Reviews. We take our readers'
suggestions seriously. Thanks to all of you for your comments-and criticisms.
Please keep them coming.
