Legal Delivery Systems - A Bibliography

Lester Brickman*t
The following selective bibliography has evolved over a period of
years during which the author has undertaken field research in the
areas of delivery of legal services to the poor, and legal paraprofes-
sionals; taught courses and seminars on the legal profession, law and
poverty, and legal services delivery systems; and written a number of
reports and articles on delivery systems. The bibliography is therefore
a working document and perforce uneven in coverage. It is most de-
tailed in those areas which have been the subject of courses and arti-
cles, e.g., legal paraprofessionals, prepaid legal insurance, and sketchy
in other are- which have been of peripheral interest or which have
played a supportive role.
The organization of the bibliography flows from a view of the role
of the lawyer in our society as central to the attainment of democratic
values. Though uneven in cadence, the various sections of the bibliog-
raphy all lead to an analysis of legal services delivery systems, that is,
to the means by which lawyering services are conveyed to the public.
The thesis which underlies the bibliography is that these delivery sys-
tems play a major role in the formulation and implementation of those
authoritative policies which we have denoted as the law. To sketch
out a conceptual framework for such a decision process is therefore
to explain the organization and content of the bibliography.
Our traditional notions of democracy dictate that the process of
formulation of our laws must be open to all individuals and groups.
Democratic decision-making is a process of development of norms
embodying the shared goals and values of substantial segments of the

Much of this bibliography was assembled in the course of performance of a consult-
ing contract with the Ford Foundation which resulted in a report on legal paraprofes-
sionals. Courses taught by the author on the legal profession have utilized and added to
the bibliography, though with uneven impact-sections I1l-D-2-lII-D-6 having re-
ceived the most attention. Section 111-D-6 has been earlier published in a different
format in 24 Vand. L. Rev. 1213 (1971) and has since been updated. Scott B. McElroy
and Eric B. Freedus, second year law students at the University of Toledo, assisted in
the updating of the bibliography.
t There are many references herein to unpublished reports, essays, letters, bro-
chures and the like. Obviously, even the curious reader will be unable to locate some of
this material. However, the serious researcher would find access to such material manda-
tory and can, through diligent effort, locate at least most of it. Often, that will require
writing to an individual or institution.
